Today team Starskycycling circled the 12.5k route for the Club Race planned to take place in May 2020. We want to know the track inside out before we share it with you. The sun was shining and while the track is short, it has a few challenging climbs ðŸĪŠ while Greg is putting an official promo movie of the track together, we'd like to share some snaps from the spin today. It was fabulous! 😊 Source

A massive thanks to all who donated towards the epic Pfizer 285km cycle challenge that took place on 27th/28th October. 140 Pfizer employees cycled from Pfizer Grange Castle to Pfizer Ringaskiddy to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society. The cycle was very hard initially as we got soaked in the first 10 minutes, but then as the sun came out, it became easier. Day 2 turned out to be great, with only 20 minutes at the very end during which we got absolutely DRENCHED. All in all though it was an experience I will never forget and I am proud to say I suffered a little for a good cause. #pfizer #fightcancer #cycle #donate #irishcancersociety #fundraisingevent #helpme #cycling #fundraiser #support Source

Gran Fondo Pro 2020 track test After weeks of planning and thinking, Starskycycling team decided to host a first and one of its kind, Gran Fondo Pro 2020 in Co. Wicklow. The track will be very tough, tougher than its hilly 200k counterpart, but full of stunning views and adrenaline jumps. Today our team went on a trial spin on the majority of the track to test it and tweak some details. Over the next few weeks a final route will be set and all the event planning will be set in motion. Get yourself ready for 30th June 2020. It'll hurt. But it will be a day you and your family will never forget ☝ïļ Track test - GRAN FONDO PRO 2020 Source

Night ride - Greg's story 🌃 "Hey lads, I'll tell you, the shot of adrenaline I got last night was something else! You go out into a completely dark forest with deer and fawns darting out right in front of you and the bike from the thick darkness, and all else you can see is gleaming eyes of animals somewhere in the distance! 👀 Absolutely insane! Nothing I'd done in a bike thus far has compared in the slightest to this 🙈 I could not sleep when I got home because of the adrenaline and endorphins rush!" Needless to say, Greg was well equipped with some padded clothing and lights to brighten up the darkness that swallowed Dublin last night. This may not be for everyone but Greg's account of his night MTB ride does sound exciting! Source

New sections - service & part shop coming soon! Kazik is starting up his pick up service for the bikes - simply get in touch with us and we'll pick your bike up, service it and drop off at no extra cost 👍 In the meantime we'd like to share this photo - Kazik figured out that a strange noise heard when he was getting up off the saddle was coming from the pictured bearing. He fixed it by re-gluing the carbon bearing in its place as the glue that was there was aged and simply let go. Keep an eye out for more mechanic's tips 😉 Source

Too wet to go road cycling? 🌧 Follow Greg's example and unleash your inner beast in the mountains. Last Sunday Greg took Pawel to Powerscourt Waterfall for what looked like a wild, wet morning! Being powerful on a road bike is one thing but being so nimble and fast on an MTB bike is an achievement. Pawel is in bits today but as can be seen from the photos and the video - he and Greg were in their element! https://youtu.be/z288FqpWzow Source
