8 May 2018

The date for the next cycle has yet to be decided.
Beginners are welcome and can be catered for by short cycles of 15 to 20km to start, increasing the distance as the weeks go on.
Later in the summer we hope to do some longer cycles, perhaps on Saturdays. Some ideas include:

  • Cycling St. Declan's Way, Cashel to Ardmore, 100km. Probably in two stages on two seperate days.
  • A loop taking in most of the Waterford Greenway and the Copper Coast between Clonea and Tramore, 82km.
  • A full circuit arount the Galtee Mountains, 65km.
  • The Burren 60km Ramble, part of the Tour De Burren on Saturday, June 16.
  • A trip to the Waterford Greenway is also planned for June 10th with Paddy Bourke as part of the club schedule.

Participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own actions and their own safety.
High visibility clothing, cycle helmets and front and rear lights are required. Bring a spare tube in case of a puncture.
