Bray People - - Bray Sport -

BRAY WHEEL­ERS con­tinue their busy win­ter sched­ule. Dur­ing the win­ter months, es­pe­cially be­fore Christ­mas, when the racing cy­clists will be tak­ing it easy as re­gards the train­ing, there are plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties go­ing on.

The next event, on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 3, at 9 p.m. in the club­house, is a Roller Night. All mem­bers are wel­come to come along and give cycling on the rollers a try.

The rollers used for this ses­sion will be track rollers and re­quire the rider to have a good sense of bal­ance and con­cen­tra­tion.

Don’t worry if this type of roller is new to you as there will be plenty of in­struc­tion on the night. Bring your bike and in­door cycling cloth­ing - it’s worth a try. This is a mem­ber’s open night - even if you just want to see how it’s done.

On Sun­day, De­cem­ber 7, the un­der­age cy­clists will be go­ing bowl­ing to cel­e­brate a suc­cess­ful sea­son.

The most re­cent suc­cess was a great per­for­mance on the Den T.V. pro­gramme, TOAST, where the Bray Wheel­ers Ju­ve­nile Team emerged vic­to­ri­ous on the day.

On Mon­day, De­cem­ber 8, in the club­house one of Ire­land’s top cycling coaches, Ai­dan Ryan of Sor­rento Cycling Club, will be giv­ing a coach­ing ses­sion for mem­bers of both Bray Wheel­ers and Sor­rento Cycling Clubs.

This ses­sion will be very help­ful for both ex­pe­ri­enced and begin­ner cy­clists. The ses­sion will in­clude plan­ning for next sea­son, how to train for goals set, and will con­clude with a ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion.

On Sun­day, De­cem­ber 21, the Bray Wheel­ers will host their an­nual Christ­mas Fancy Dress Two Up Fun Cy­cle. Sign on at 10 a.m. at the Club House, Schools Road, Bray.

This is a fun event and is the only event the club run through­out the year where the fastest team is not nec­es­sar­ily the win­ner.

Teams of two or fam­ily teams pre­dict the time it will take them to cy­cle the route and the winning team will be the team that fin­ish with the time clos­est to their pre­dicted time.

Watches will not be worn!!!!! There are also prizes for the best fancy dress team and many other spot prizes will be awarded on the day.

This event is open to all ages and abil­i­ties, how­ever, we do re­quest that par­ents cy­cle with chil­dren un­der the age of 12 years. Re­fresh­ments will be served in the club­house af­ter the event.
