    Should be a good one. This is the first of four rounds all based in Dublin. You can sign-on online now for it. Directions and race info in the link below. Hope to see lots of the Tuesday night people out giving this a go.... best 3 of the 4 rounds count towards the cup standings.

    Excellent, will hopefully be coming with the family to watch this one.

    Which brand of beer do you want thrown over you?

    We are not running youth races this year due to very poor or no turnout in previous years. We're not running support MTB events for the same reason. Do bring the kids though as it will be great to watch. Hopefully with cycling Ireland's sproket rocket campaign we might have some more interest next year.

    No prob. But if I do bring my youngest he WILL want to ride at least 1 circuit even if he is on his own

    be warned he is fast, has a big kick. Is a skinny as you and loves the hills as much as the flat and does not possess 1 ounce of fear.






    mmmmm......Not a single trait that his Da possess's!!! (had to get in before someone did)

    I opted for their version of wiessbier. I will take a tester later in the week


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 671 ✭✭✭billy.fish


    I can confirm the presence of Leffe

    Was it present in amounts detectable in common labs or the variety only detected in Cologne?

    And does it go well with meat?

    Goes well with home made egg fried rice with chicken...i'll tell you that much
