Meet n’ Spin is taking place in Mullingar every Monday evening during May and June. Those wishing to participate are asked to meet at Outdoor Escape, Mullingar Business Park, to set up at 6.30pm with the aim of leaving at 7pm sharp. This programme is for those over the age of 16, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Meet n’ Spin is also starting in Athlone on Wednesday, June 6th for 6 weeks. Participants will meet at the Bounty with aim of leaving at 7pm.
Meet n’ Spin is a FREE recreational cycling group with the emphasis on fun and fitness first, speed second. All abilities are welcomed and catered for. Westmeath Sports Partnership has a number of bikes and helmets available for use by group participants so you don’t even need a bicycle to get involved. Over the weeks participants will cycle a variety of local routes such as the Mullingar Cycle Hub, Active Travel Mullingar network and local roads, taking 1 hour initially, progressing to 2 hours over the weeks. The spins will be led by a minimum of 2 qualified Bike Start Tutors who will advise and coordinate the spin based on participants needs.
Over the last three weeks the group has rapidly increased, our most recent meeting held on Monday last had 26 participants in attendance. All those taking part vary in fitness levels and ability meaning this recreational cycling group gives everyone the opportunity to achieve personal goals in a safe and fun environment.
