IVCA Hillclimb 2015

Long Hill

Sunday 4th October


The IVCA Hill Climb took place on 4 October on a dry but cold day at Kilmacanogue.  Barry Swan set the standard to beat with the first sub-8 minute time of the day, posting 7:54 for the 2.9 Km course.  Two riders later, Paul Dolan set a new benchmark of 7:46 and this looked like it might stand until the last rider up the hill, Neill Delahaye, stormed in for the win with a time of7:37.
Proving that age is no barrier to getting up the hill, first on Handicap time went to Fred Harte, who was one of only two riders to improve on his previous time (the other being Paul Dolan) into a nagging head wind.

Winter Training and the various characters

The annual article on the various winter training types. Have you ever ridden with any of these lads? I have met most of them over the years although strava man is usually way ahead of me.

Thanks to stickybottle and Tim Barry for the article.

Recognise these guys?


A good article which explains methods of cycling safely in a bunch/group of riders. This is worth a read regardless of experience but is especially important for novices to bunch riding.
Thanks to Aidan Ryan /
