Looking Back on a Year

It’s been over a year since I started the site. I’m happy with how things have turned out. Thanks to everyone who’s lent support and encouragement over the last twelve months. Thinks look set to continue.

Given the Irish origin of the site name, I’ve decided that there isn’t enough Irish content so I’m going to try and redress the balance a bit. This is the Irish Cycling site, a bit like Cycling News, but with a more celtic influence. It’s probably the best way to keep up to date with the Irish road scene, but there’s mountain biking stuff on their too if you want to keep tabs on Glyn O’Brien, Robin Seymour, Jenny McCauley, etc.

And also on an Irish theme: Bicykills? Definitely scope for a Manchester based version of this site. Anything left unattended between Friday night and Monday morning is likely to receive ‘the treatment’ from the Yates’ tossers.

Italian sprinter Mario Cipollini will return to what is likely to be his last Tour de France this year after his Domina Vacanze team were given a wild card by the event organisers on Friday. There are a few reports about, but this one pretty much says it all.

The Chelsea Pedalers Bicycle Polo Club? It’s a sport open to both men and women, check out the photo galleries and are those purpose built bikes? Maybe we should get the couriers onto this. Fixed gear bikes, handling skills….

And finally Volvo have been putting a rather controversial advert on the TV and at the Cinemas recently for their S40. Did 32 families buy the same car on the same day in a Swedish town? Find out a bit more here.
