Galway Cycle Training Cycles

Saturday
10:00 to 00:00
CS: Galway Cycle

We organise weekly training cycles to both increase overall fitness levels as well as teach everyone the proper etiquette when cycling in a group. These cycles are at a comfortable pace (approx 25 km/hr) and everyone is taken care of.

Information on the training cycles

  • Saturday & Sunday mornings, 10am at the south NUIM campus gates
  • Here is the training plan (check out our training plan)
  • Attendance is taken at each training cycle
  • For insurance purposes each cyclist must be insured through cycling Ireland prior to attending the training cycles. See here for details on how to obtain the insurance.
  • Compulsory attendance is required at two mandatory training sessions. There will be two weekends in February  and two in March. It is compulsory to attend at least one of these February sessions and one of the March sessions. If you are unable to do so, please email the training committee to explain. (training@galwaycycle.ie).  Please see the training plan for specific dates for this year.

What to bring to the training cycles

  • Helmet (no helmet, no cycle)
  • Proof of your License with Cycling Ireland
  • For each training cycle, bring an isotonic drink, some food (such as bananas, chocolate, flapjacks etc) and some shopping money (€3)
  • Spare tube and a pump
  • Padded shorts – especially if you want to sit down again… ever
  • Gloves & warm footwear
