Welcome to Clontarf Cycling Club
Contarf Cycling club started in 2012 as an idea between a group of like-minded mad hatters with the plan to start a small club for weekend spins.
PJ Gallagher, Ger Devine, Ronan O’Neill and Diarmaid McStay came together and the cycling club seed were sown. Through great perseverance and dedication, our cycling club was soon formed.
What started out as an idea is now a fully-fledged Cycling Ireland affiliated club with over 180 members and counting. Members range from early 20’s to the 60+ both female and male.
The club caters for all newcomers with a mantra that all who start together finish together. There are various groups and abilities and groups are set up to cater for all levels: beginner, leisure, active and racing abilities
Cathal Miller is the Chairman of Clontarf Cycling Club. Cathal has represented Ireland at the Paralympics in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012 and is an integral part of our ethos and what we stand for as a club. There are a number of “Road Captains” whom organise groups, distances, routes etc. to ensure safety and essentially give some advice on bike handling, group riding, maintenance, general cycle fitness tips. The club are not a racing club but see ourselves as a leisure/sportive based club that welcome all comers. The club committee have put together a schedule for the year of club spins, sportives and weekly rides.
These are available on the Clontarf Cycling Facebook page, Twitter feed @Clontarf Cycling and via the calendar page on our website.
We welcome newcomers on Sunday mornings, at the GAA club and we encourage no more than than 2 training spins before we insist you sign up for a membership.
Please see our forum for times and details of spins and events.
The official club launch took place on the 1st of March 2013 at Clontarf GAA clubhouse.
