Glens CC Host Safety Talk.

aGlens Cycling Club is a relatively new club within Cycling Ulster but it is growing quickly with around 50 members already.  Based in the picturesque Antrim coast town of Cushendall they have many members who are new to cycling and as such they invited Colin Hughes along last Saturday night (8th June) to give a talk on group riding and general cycling safety.

The talk, in the Glen Hotel, was well attended by the club members despite many of them having ridden a gruelling 100 miles through the glens as part of a charity cycling challenge earlier in the day.  Club members asked many questions on all aspects of group ridding, riding in traffic and generally being safe on a bike.

On Sunday morning Colin and Dermot Hughes joined the club on their Sunday club run.  There were a few sore legs from the day before but the group enjoyed a pleasant ride down the coast road to Glenarm and back where they put into practice everything that had been discussed the night before.  The weather was misty at first but the sun soon broke through to raise the temperature and make it a glorious day on the beautiful Antrim coast road recently voted one of the most scenic roads in the world.

I would like to thank Glens CC for their generous hospitality and I know that a welcoming and friendly club such as theirs is sure to go from strength to strength in the future.
