This week we will do part of the An Post Ras course. We cycle out to Sallins and then turn down the canal onto the Sherlockstown Road. This brings us to Straffan where we continue on the Maynooth Road before turning towards Ladychapel. We then do part of the Tour of Kildare route to Kilcock and on to Enfield for coffee. We return via Carbury, Allenwood and Carragh. Last week worked very successfully with the two groups. We need to bear in mind that we are now cycling at winter pace and that there are new B Group members working towards cycling at our group pace. Everyone should now have mudguards and lights. Raceblade type mudguards are preferable to the shorter ones which give no protection to the rider behind. Remember, think of the group collective not just your own comfort.
