Bray Wheel­ers hit the fes­tive high road

Bray People - - NEWS -

MO­TORISTS out on the N11 may have had to do a dou­ble take re­cently as quite a few San­tas and elves put the pedal to the metal at the an­nual Bray Wheel­ers Christ­mas Fun Race.

Around 30 mem­bers took to the route along the N11, many of them dressed in their most fes­tive cos­tumes in­clud­ing Santa out­fits, elf cos­tumes and Christ­mas jumpers.

The race pro­vides the mem­bers with a great chance to meet up for some fun ahead of Christ­mas and this year was no dif­fer­ent as they all em­braced the Christ­mas spirit. The event con­sisted of an adult ‘pre­dict your time’ event which saw the mem­bers pair off, pre­dict a time in which they thought they’d fin­ish and then cy­cle the 8 km with­out any watches, phones or on­board de­vices and see how close to their time they could get. The clos­est on the day won a prize.

There was also plenty of ac­tion for younger mem­bers with races tak­ing place on the grass at the club­house through­out the day.

‘It was a great day,’ said Beryl Gil­more. ‘It’s a great bit of fun be­fore Christ­mas. The club has had a great year and is grow­ing all the time. I think there’s about 200 mem­bers at the mo­ment. The com­mit­tee have done a lot of great things and rein­vested a lot of money back into the club and it’s go­ing from strength to strength.’

The mem­bers en­joyed the event and are look­ing for­ward to many more in the New Year.
