Galway Cycle Training

Saturday
10:00 to 12:00
CS: Galway Cycle

2018 will be the 31st Galway Cycle, and we will have over 200 cyclists on the road in April.

We pride ourselves on our safety record and are fully equipped for all circumstances on the weekend with a Garda escort, motorbike outriders, ambulances and mechanics’ vans. We also have buses to allow any cyclist have a break. You DO NOT need to be able to cycle the full distance to come and join in!

Training Cycles

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.  The below is a brief outline of our training arrangements:

  • Training leaves from the Maynooth University South Campus at 10am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, starting in January.
  • For insurance purposes, each cyclist must  be a member of Cycling Ireland, holding a Leisure or Competition license (Cycling Support License is not adequate).
  • Attendance is compulsory at two mandatory training sessions. There will be two weekends in February and two in March on each of which one cycle must be attended.  If you are unable to do so due to extenuating circumstances, please email training@galwaycycle.ie to explain.  Please see the training plan for specific dates for this year.

Training Requirements

  • Helmet nbsp;(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
  • Light rain jacket
