Bray Wheelers hit the festive high road
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.
