For those members with an interest in cycling

Cycling Group – Portadown Pod

The cycling on Thursday 19th will be from the Portadown pod. It will be a nice gentle cycle on the Towpath to Scarva/Poyntzpass. Coffee at either Petty sessions at the ‘pass or the Pump house in Portadown or there is even a third choice of Scarva. Alan and David will guide you.

Cycling Group – Loughgall pod.

Everyone enjoying the fine weather? At least the forecast for Thursday 5th July is sun, dry and not too hot.The Loughgall pod is booked so be there around 09.15 to depart 09.30 . Alan with the support of Stewart will lead you on some of the lesser known minor roads round Loughgall with the obligatory coffee stop. I know of only one hill in the whole area but, so you are not too disappointed, we can make up for that in August.

Cycling Group – Scarva Pod

We are cycling on Thursday, 26th, weather permitting, from the Scarva pod. Meet at 09.15 leaving at 09.30 at the latest. I plan to cycle the Stramore road route via Portadown in a figure of eight which we have done before but with coffee in Gilford this time. That is tow path, main road cycle lane, cycle path, footpaths and minor roads. Only good hill on the Stramore road this time but to make up for it there is a really nice hill after coffee!

That is the plan but there is a lot of debris in the paths so I will have to check the route again before Thursday.

Cycling Group – Scarva

We are back on the “road” again after our winter break.  I have booked
12 bicycles and Tom and I might bring our own.  We’ll take it easy for
the first outing.  Statements of cyclists medication and
corresponding ailments must be forwarded to David by the 23rd.

Meet at Scarva Pod at 9:15 am sharp
