Bike Maintenance & Gear

We will have a Bike Maintenance session on Thursday 8th September at 8pm in Clogheen hall. If you ever wanted to know how to change a flat tyre or make simple repairs to your bike then this is the session for you.

Also we have some queries about gear orders. We are in the process of finalising our sponsors, gear provider and design for the next 2 years. This will be complete shortly and we will then be ordering gear.

Kids cycling sessions

UPDATE: This has been pushed out to Saturday 24th September due to conflicting activities for several kids in Clogheen NS

With the schools back our Kids cycling sessions will start again on Saturday morning 24th September. We will meet outside the hall in Clogheen at 9:45 and depart at 10am. Short circuits suitable for kids and their parents. The children will get free membership to the club but will have to be registered as a member of Cycling Ireland (http://www.cyclingireland.ie/) for insurance reasons.
