thriller with a small t

The vintage car rally invasion made it a good day to evacuate and with the start of Thriller season some felt the Cooleys a good call .
After the usual prolonged debate about starting time and venue , Tims idea (of starting at Omeath doing the back loop then leaving the front loop as an option) was accepted .

Paul was there for the inaugural ride on new steed , its looks like the piggy bank may have been raided. Kenny , Tim , COC , Herself , Dan and Eamon made up the numbers . Cormac had been unable to fix his car although what he couldn’t have just cycled up from Dublin and met us I dont know.

We escaped any rain which was a miracle given the forecast . Kenny was off form and about half way through , COC and Herself offered to navigate him out on a shortcut to Skull alley 😉 . The others proceeded along the usual route and were never seen again .

Finlieve lane next week ?

Blood ,Sweat and Midges

Poor show tonight , Mr S was so late he never arrived , Dr L was at home stroking his new 38C tyres , PS doesn’t want to get new bike dirty and the Rossi crowd are saving themselves for the W200 , probably just as well.
Only the trusty BG and Kenny turned up with COC on a rare Tuesday night appearance. The mountain was as dry as dust , Fallow , loop , trails , Tunnel, Mast , Ballynagelty and home . Clear rounds for all on mast and ballynagelty , grip to spare.

The midges were plentiful so stopping anywhere was out of the question , poor Kenny took a bad fall coming ogg Ballynagelty , but was more concerned about the bike than the blood streaming from his elbow . BG helpfully added it would need 4 stitches. Beautiful night with stunning views of the lough and the sunset . Glad to be back.
