You will find all kinds in groups of cyclists, title the groups but there is no release from being dropped, half wheeled or otherwise. You know what has to be done, so put them demons behind up, get o

A little birdy told me there were bodies all over the place on a touring spin today. Not much room left in the porch!

I use a red wine protein drink for recovery and aldi salted peanuts to banish the hunger pains. Wonderful stuff!

22/11/2014 16:10
My manager told me to rest and drink plenty of beer as its good for recovery. Forget them fancy recovery aids.

Never mind them, when it matters you be In the right place and all those self titled kings of the road will be left thinking why oh why did I train too early and half wheel my leader

Back on the porch again. Have to call Pet Rescue. Today, a pretender to the ST throne worked me over. 21 hours next week!

It's not about the turkey baby it's about pride. Remember pain is temporary failure is forever. I'm still out the road looking for somewhere to sleep as least ciaran has a porch

With all this talk of bird flu might be better to give this whole turkey thing a miss?

18/11/2014 16:33
Heartened to know you're still thinking about me John!

Picked this up from Eoghan, one of the Audax gang, it is from Cyclesuperstore's facebook page;

Roadies’ Coffee Breaks


Best part of our ride is frequently the coffee stop. Somewhere nice, middle of nowhere, good coffee, couple of decent sweet options, good sandwiches, homemade soup and banter with the mates. Maybe check out some of the bikes parked outside. Perhaps chat with a few other groups on what they have been up to. We tend in fact to base our ride on which cafe we are going to stop in that day.

Worst part of our ride is probably puncturing, then feeling for the rest of ride that the tyres are a little underpowered. So what we have done is to leave track pumps at some of the best coffee stops where we know you will probably stop too. So, next time you are out, know that the following list of places have a decent pump to get your tyres up to top speed. Look out for the above signs and ask for the use of their pump if you need it.

• Kingfisher’s Kitchen, Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow
• The Armoury Cafe, Glencree Reconciliation Ctr., Co. Dublin
• The Coffee Dock, Main St., Roundwood, Co. Wicklow.
• Glendalough Green, Larragh, Co. Wicklow.
• Glenmalure Lodge, Glenmalure, Co. Wicklow.
• Avoca Cafe, Mount Usher Gardens, Ashford, Co. Wicklow.
• Coffee Shop, Delgany, Co. Wicklow.
• The Buttery Cafe, Fishers, Newtown Mount Kennedy, Co. Wicklow.
• Johnny Fox’s Pub. Glencullen, Co. Dublin
• Kenny’s Kitchen, Main St., Blessington, Co. Wicklow.

Ok, so all these places are on the Dublin/Wicklow mountains routes. Have you got some good cafe stops where you would like to see a floor pump? Further, anything else you would like to see for you at these stops? Obvious is tubes and repair kits. Do you forget to pack these sometimes? Please let us know.

great initiative - but too much bias in the location given the number of people who are willing to head over from the northside of the city to Cycle Superstore. They could easily chuck a few in to the Ashbourne Garristown and West Dublin areas.

Update on the track pump locations. Cycle SuperStore put this up on their Facebook page today

Northside Coffee Shops


We mentioned a few days ago we had put some floor pumps for road cyclists in cafes. All of these cafes were on the south side of Dublin and further south into the Wicklow mountains. . Thanks to feedback here from some of our Northside Roadies, we have provided the following Cafes with pumps as well. Look out for the signs and please ask for the pump if you need it.


• Seamus Ennis Cultural Centre Cafe, The Naul, Co. Dublin
• Gourmet Food Parlour, The Grange, Ballyboughal, Co. Dublin
• Sage & Stone, Newlanes, Duleek, Co. Meath.
• Newbarn Farm, Old Finglas Rd, Co. Dublin.
• Corks Cafe, Ashbourne, Co. Meath.
• Maguire’s Cafe, Hill of Tara, Co. Meath.


Check out some of these routes on the other side for a break from your usual rides. There are some great rolling roads through serene countryside, and all of the cafes above are popular with cyclists for a good reason- good coffee and food, some great locations and lovely places. Further details we’ll add on our website shortly.
