I was getting older and rounder and was looking for an exercise discipline that wouldn’t strain the joints too much. I had heard about the couch to 80k cycle programme, with the aim of participating in the Tour de Conamara. I decided to give it a go and enjoyed it so much that I kept it up. I joined the Twelve Bens Cycling Club when it launched. Really enjoying the camaraderie and company on club spins.
I started cycling in 1995 having stopped playing GAA and soccer due to lots of hamstring problems. Cycling didn’t bother the hamstrings. I had raced in open competition for sixteen years all over the country. Got my coaching papers a few years back so when we started the Twelve Bens CC I decided it was time to pack in the open racing and start to put something back into the sport.
I started cycling in 2016. I love cycling and I enjoy the sense of freedom when cycling. I love the sense of achievement after doing a sportif. Most of all, I love the friends I have made.
