Following a popular start in 2015, Tuesday’s evening club runs return for their second year.
Unlike almost every other club run Old Bleach hosts, the Tuesday club runs leave from Antrim. To be specific they depart from St. Comgall’s Primary School car park at 6-30pm on Tuesday evenings.
Like the Wednesday Sevens, Tuesday’s club runs are suitable for all attendees – from the beginner to the experienced cyclist. You don’t even need to be on a road specific bicycle to take part.
The Wednesday Sevens, or W7s, have proven to be one of Old Bleach’s most successful club runs.
They have been a great introduction to cycling for some of our club members and an excuse to get a few extra sociable miles in for others.
As the name suggests, the W7s meet on Wednesdays at 7pm. This takes place outside The Old Forge, Randalstown.
On a W7s club run nobody will find s/he struggles. It is formatted to suit all cyclists in attendance and very much all-inclusive. Road bikes are not a necessity on Wednesdays – hybrids, mountain bikes etc. are very welcome too.
Thursday’s club runs are specifically for those people training for the likes of Road Races and Time Trials.
They are not group cycles. Thursdays will be structured in a manner unlike any of our other club runs, geared 100% toward improving the cyclist’s ability to compete.
Each week may consist of different training eg. one week may be purely repeated laps of a hill climb and the next may comprise of an unofficial time trial for club members. This will be decided by those partaking in training/racing.
Training runs meet outside The Old Forge, Randalstown at 6-30pm on Thursday evenings.
We hope to see plenty of you in the evening from here on in.
NB: All riders taking part in evening runs are strongly advised to have working rear lights on their bicycles. As with all Old Bleach rides, cycle helmets must be worn during the club run. Any minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
