Membership, Kit and the First Planned Cycle of 2009

Just an update post.

We are now taking membership for 2009, and will continue to do so up to and including the 7th of January 2009. We are trying to get members in early in the year so that proper planning for the club can be done from the outset. From the 7th onwards all club email and comunications for training, cycles, kit etc will be sent exclusively to registered members.

The kit, comprising of a short sleeve ¼ zip jersey, bib shorts and gloves costs €94.00 per set. The cost of €94.00 is based on an order of 10 sets or more. Should an order for numbers less than 10 be placed an increase in price is incurred, i.e 5-10 sets of kit will cost €112.00 per kit and  1-5 sets of kit will come in at €140.00 per set.

This year other garments bearing the club logo only will be available for order also. These include jackets; (windproof training jacket €53.00, waterproof breathable €62.00), cycling gilets; (windproof €52.00, waterproof breathable €61.00) and bib-longs €51.00. The prices of these are similarly affected by order numbers.

Now Down to the Intersting Stuff –  Blarney CC have invited The Chain Gang CC and its members to participate in the Donal Crowley Memorial Sportive run on Sun 4th Jan 2009.

The route is 72km long running Blarney – Coachford – Macroom – Ballincollig – Blarney. I’m including a link to a map to show the route with options to view its profile HERE. Blarney CC have said it’s suitable for all levels of fitness and experience so it could be a good one for everyone to start the year with and burn off some of the turkey calories after Xmas!!  A text will be sent out in the near future via a team managment system (TEAMER so you’ll see it when it comes through) and interested parties should reply Y to confirm their interest.

There is also the possibility of a Stevens day spin and even a New Years short spin and more information will be sent out when we know more.
