The Women’s Commissions Munster Girls Mentoring Programme was based in Cork this weekend (Feb 4th)
Mentors Aggie Wozniak, Sheila Lucey and Fiona Meade met the girls on a cold crisp bright morning as they assembled at Cork County hall on the banks of the lovely Lee.
Joining them also were Tracey Cotter and Joanne Lawlor ,
The youth riders from Killarney, Dingle and Middleton rode out along the river in bright sunshine on spin: of 65k, and 500 metres elevation,
Coached and advised by Aggie, Fiona and Sheila on a Route from county hall, killumney, cloughduv, crookstown, hill up to Kilmurry, (history lesson at the independence museum by Sheila at the top of the hill) , and through coachford village, Dripsey and spinning out the legs home on the Carrigrohane Straight back to the county hall ,
On their return Sheila had fresh baked Healthy Snacks on hand and all who could linger for a while longer went to the coffeeshop next door for a chat and a great Q & A session, where Fiona went through what each of the girls had learned from the day,
Some girls had missed the spin due to exams – but we will have a repeat of the day , and also an afternoon of bike skills and race tactics from Irish National Champion and former Pro Fiona Meade.
A really massive Thanks to these wonderful Cork women for their time , effort, fun and advice looking forward to the return to the rebel county.
Thanks to Cork County CC for hosting
