Fred and Ginger, Laurel and Hardy, coffee and cycling. At Fixx Coffeehouse we recognise that some things just go together. So we set up our own cycling club, Fixx Rouleurs. Club members include leisure cyclists, racing cyclists and triathletes who all share a love of the bike and fine coffee.

Season’s over

Well,it’s that time. Coffee spins,mountain biking and a well earned breather for everyone that has been competing in their various disciplines .

The road season went well with Ger and Mick picking up a number of wins .We had a good representation from  members new to road racing who all seemed to enjoy  it enormously. Club races went well with good support from participants and marshals alike. Many thanks to Dublin Wheelers with whom we co-hosted the races. We hope to host a season of club races next year incorporating a TT league.

Julian,Dave and Fergus all completed IM events and achieved personal bests in difficult conditions.

We were delighted and proud in equal measure to have two of our club mates,Enda Smyth and Cathal Miller represent Ireland in the London 2012 Paralympics. Cathal was chosen to be FlagBearer at the opening ceremony. They both did us proud but as Enda has promised a blog I won’t say anymore than ‘Chapeau’.

Club spins continue from Fixx at 9am on Saturdays. We will be renewing memberships and taking new members in over the coming weeks. Craig is putting together a new order for club gear so get your order in folks.

A weekend of mountain biking is planned for the 19/20th October in Ballyhoura and we have negotiated an attractive deal with a local hotel for anyone interested. This is pretty much a chance to goof about on purpose made trails and have a laugh and a beer in the evenings. All are welcome and no level of skill required.

Club night coming up shortly too.

Fixx Coffeehouse sponsored a stage of the Ras na mBan and your friend and humble narrator got to fulfill a lifetime’s ambition and be a podium girl. The Coffeehouse is also sponsoring the upcoming ‘Fixx Supercup league ‘being organized by WORC. If you have never been to a cyclocross race check it out. Great craic.

Six months and counting…

Ger taking the win

‘Well folks it’s six months now and I’m pleased to say that club spins continue every Sat at 9am from Fixx. The racing season is well underway with Ger and Mick bagging wins and Cathal and Enda competing on the international stage getting ready for 2012 Paralympics in London.

The triathletes amongst us have been busy too with Tim,Dave,Fergus and Julian racing and the latter three in the final throes of their IM prep. Craig unfortunately had to withdraw due to injury but he is planning on doing the Lost Sheep 1/2 IM later in the year in Kenmare

There was a good showing for the Wicklow 200 with Dave,Fergus,Rory and Paul all completing the event in fine style along with a number of other regulars.

Hope to revert shortly with details of a few club events
