One of Killarney’s newest businesses is offering Ring of Kerry Cycle participants a great deal to help prepare them for the event.

Reboot Recovery is the only dedicated recovery suite in town based in Woodlands Industrial Estate off the Killarney bypass. The facility is purpose built for people looking to get the best out of their body, reduce the risk of injury and perform to their maximum potential.

With the Ring of Kerry Cycle only a few weeks away, Reboot Recovery is offering advice and a 20% discount for all cyclists participating to help them stay fit and healthy in the lead up to the event.

ADVICE

“As the event gets closer participants will be hitting the road at every opportunity, trying to get as many miles in to the legs as they can," Chris Davies from Reboot said.

"It is important that people listen to their body during this training period and make sure they are giving their body adequate time to recover so that they stay injury free. Depending on your level of fitness and the training you have already banked, the number of rest days a person will need can vary, but a general rule of thumb is to allow your body 48 hours to recover.

“In the 24 to 48 hours after a tough workout you will feel the effects of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). This comes from tiny, microscopic tears in your muscle fibres. Your body responds to this damage by increasing inflammation and this restricts your ability to get back out and train.

"Getting in to Reboot Recovery the day after a tough session can help reduce the effects of DOMS and will allow you to recover and get back out on that bike faster. A few recovery sessions with Reboot, coupled with good sleep, diet and hydration will ensure you are adequately recovering in the lead up to the cycle.

​​​​​​​OFFER 

"We would like to offer all Ring of Kerry participants 20% off our full recovery session in the lead up to the cycle, meaning you will only pay €20 instead of €25.

"The one hour recovery session starts with five minutes in our Mobility and Activation Area using our Massage Guns and Electrical Rollers and Massage Balls, followed by 3 x 10 minutes in our market leading CET CryoSpa, Infrared Sauna and Hot Tub. After that clients chill out for 25 minutes in our NormaTec Compression Boots which give your legs a deep tissue massage."

To avail of the discount enter the code ROK22 when booking online at www.rebootkillarney.com. If you have any questions feel free to call us on 086 7809477 or email info@rebootkillarney.com.

Killarney cyclist Sam Bolger (18) has been selected as one of four riders for the Belgian Project – one of the most prestigious stepping stones for Irish riders with ambitions to turn professional.

Northern Ireland-based Belgian Danny Blondell is the man behind the project.

For the last 15 years Blondell selects between four and six Irish riders and sends them to Belgium where they stay with local families and contest pro and semi-pro races.

As a race commentator Blondell is well placed to decide who is deserving of inclusion in the project.

Over the first six months of the year he makes decisions while attending early season races.

Those lucky enough to get selected go to live and race in Belgium for the second six months of the year.

Bolger, from Lewis Road, was selected after winning the junior race in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series in Mayo in March and the Orwell Stage Race in County Wicklow in June.

“He is delighted, it is a very big deal,” his father Paul told the Killarney Advertiser.

“He has had a very good year and the wins in Mayo and Wicklow secured the Belgium Project.”

Bolger will head to Belgium in late July and after to the Junior Tour of Ireland which takes place in County Clare between July 12 and 17.
