Sunday 13th
Orange take the coast road to Rathnew, then climb to Roundwood and home.
85km and 1020m ascent

Yellow/White also take the coast road but turn at Kilcoole to go toNMK.
The published route then goes over Slaughter Hill for coffee at Roundwood and home
70km and 1000m ascent
(Slaughter Hill is 7km @ 4% avg though it spikes at 10% near the top.
Its well within the capability of regular Sunday spin riders.
However some White groups might prefer coffee at NMK and return via the N11)

For anyone who is interested a group of us are meeting at the yellow house at 8.30 in tomorrow morning. The planned route is Enniskerry, Old Long Hill, Oldbridge, Laragh for coffee and back by the Sally Gap if the wind has calmed down enough.
Mid Orange pace upwards

Over the next few weeks I'll start up a Summer Sunday Mountains spin similar to previous years targeted which will be done at a similar pace. All those spins will be posted on the forum.

While we don’t know how many people turned up on any given Sunday, there were more than 840 signups for Winter spins since October.  (This comprises 188 different people,  one of whom did sign up for 16 of the 20 spins).The pattern across the Winter and the roads covered are shown in the 2 pictures below.

Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Summer.  Keep smiling!
