Well-Oiled Wheelers

Eight cyclists and a crew from the WOW’s cycled the epic Malin to Mizen 600 km cycle in under 24 hours on Sat last 25th June. This was a massive challenge but the guys have been training hard and were in great shape. They were supported by a backup crew who were with them all the way. It was not an easy journey and the weather was not great. A great achievement by these men; well done and congratulations.

The Well-Oiled Wheelers was formed in 2011 and is growing from strength to strength with over fifty active members participating in regular club cycles and weekend events.
