The first step is to find out what type of licence you are looking for?
The following is an overview of the licence options available from Cycling Ireland. The majority of our members take out the Non-Competition Licence which covers all club spins/events and the wide range of national leisure sportives.
Introductory Licence – If you have never been a member of Cycling Ireland, and are not interested in racing you can select an “Introductory” licence for €20. This covers you while you are out training, on club spins, but not for racing, not even club races.
Non-competition Licence – This licence is €30. This licence allows you to go on club spins, but not to race at all even in club races.
Club Competition Licence – This licence is €60. This licence allows you to race in club leagues / races, but not in Open Races.
Restricted Licences – You have the option of getting a restricted licence for just MTB. This licence is €90. Once you select a restricted licence you must select a category. The correct choice for you is “Off Road”. If you select “Off Road” you must select the type of licence you need depending on your standard. If you are unsure as to which type you need you are best off asking a member of the club for advice. The types are: elite; masters; senior/sport; veteran.
Full Competition Licence – If you want to race the road, be on the national team etc. This licence costs €125. This licence qualifies you for racing in any discipline in Ireland. If you want to race on the road in open races, this is the type of licence you want. The categories you can select from are based on your ability, the highest being A+, which is reserved for those road riders who are on pro-teams (with the exception of female pro riders). A1 is the next highest category, then A2, the majority of the members are either A3 or A4 riders, with the A4 category being reserved for new members, and weaker/less experienced riders.
