We have a plan to restart Winter Spins on 3rd October (and run to 27th March).
As numbers fall off during the Winter we will stick with the traditional Sunday format.

Dispatch will be from the Old Shopping Centre Car Park in Dundrum
Red groups leave at 09:00
Orange groups leave at 09:10
Yellow groups leave at 09:20
White groups leave at 09:30

As usual we will are looking for volunteers to lead white and yellow spins. The intent is that volunteers would each lead one spin before Christmas and one spin in the New Year.

If you are willing to lead a spin can you RSVP to one of these events on RWGPS
Volunteer to lead White
Volunteer to lead Yellow

or email

if you want to suggest a colour/weekend that particularly suits you.

I will then assign leaders to weekends - and setup a thread for swaps in the event that someone cant make a given weekend.

Many thanks to those who volunteered to lead Winter spins.   I have rostered them for rides before Christmas.

White, Yellow & Orange Winter Spins for 10-Oct are posted on RWGPS

White & Yellow have a nice 70km to Dunboyne with minimal elevation. 
(Orange riders will determine their own route)

If you intend to ride this weekend then please RSVP on RWGPS. 
That way we will know how many to expect. 

Im traveling next week with limited connectivity so I won’t be assigning riders to leaders for now.

What's the story with Ride With GPS. When I log in, I don't see Sunday's route nor the RSVP option. Is there some club account I need to log in with?

We had only one taker (me) for the Red Spin on Sunday. To get things going again, here's a route for Sunday October 10. Like the other groups we'll head to Dunboyne, but use a slightly longer loop. 

ridewithgps.com/routes/37707587

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.

Ive updated the file on the Orwell Website to include the RED route for Sunday. I can do that on an ongoing basis - as soon as you decide your route. 
That way - after a while - I have a library of RED appropriate routes. 
(I have no idea what is appropriate for reds)


Let me know if you want me to add an event so people can register/express interest. 
- and I can give you a heads up on Fri/Sat as to how many you might expect. 
That may be overkill for RED groups with modest numbers. 
 For Reds (and Oranges) which should do whatever works / makes sense.   
I'll go along with whatever you suggest. 

(Yellow and White typically have bigger numbes - and so more structure is required)
