Croke Park to Doohamlet

John Doran a prominent member of Emyvale Cycling Club is leading a delegation of about 30 people from Doohamlet GFC to cycle from Croke Park to Doohamlet next Saturday morning. They leave Dublin at approximately 8.30 am and hope to be back home in Doohamlet for around 2.00 p.m. We wish them the best of luck on this long cycle and hope that they raise plenty of money for their club in the process.


Giant's Causeway Sportive

Emyvale cyclists Eunan Croarkin, Gerard Hughes, Francis Mc Kenna, Dara Mc Kenna, Gabriel Bell and Patrick Deery as well as Monaghan lads Ronan Baxter and Sean Baxter tackled a mammoth 182 kms of the northern coastline on Sunday last. The cyclists left at 7.30 am and were out in wind and rain battling the elements for the best part of the day. This was an excellently run event and all credit to those who organised it and to the lads who finished it.

Philip Deignan one of Ireland's top professional riders and who is competing in the world championships this weekend gave a talk on Friday evening ahead of the event. Phillip gave riders a unique insight into his training regimes as well as chatting about winning Stage 18 of the Vuelta a Espana in 2009. He also be cut the ribbon at the start of the sportive. Hopefully the lads will be recovered in time for the Tour of Monaghan this Sunday!
