Along with the rest of the club winter spins, the Red Spin will resume from Sunday onwards. This week's route will be:
www.strava.com/routes/3010920964141608812

Meet at 9am, Old Dundrum Shopping Centre Car Park

We'll follow a similar enough progression as we did last year:
  • October: Target distance 80km with coffee stop
  • November/December: Target distance 100km with optional coffee stop
  • January/February: Target distance 100km with drills in second half of spin.
For Northside routes, we'll meet at the Pope's Cross in the Phoenix Park at 9am

The goal of of these spins is steady, Z2, pre-season miles in a well-drilled group. No half-wheeling and no blowing the group up on the hills. 

If you're looking for more miles or faster speeds, tack on some extra work before or after the spin. That's what everyone else who's doing more will be doing.

If you're off the pace, take short turns on the front. If you're feeling good, by all means take a longer pull but don't hog the front either lest the people behind you freeze to death!

Dick. I think the road from Newcastle to Celbridge is closed at the moment at the Celbridge end. Certainly was very recently. May need to think about detour. Tony

I think it was closed a few weeks back and our resident Celbridge expert Michael Monahan took us around it.

Yea, it's only a small section near Celbridge that's closed. I came through Celbridge on Wednesday and while it was still closed, I took the exact same diversion as Michael took in that Strava activity referenced above.
