A few dates for your diary

The next club meeting is on Feb 3rd 2016 at 8pm at Teach na Teamhrach on the  Trim Road. Up for discussion are updates on our ongoing projects, as well as planning for the upcoming fundraising roller cycle and the Cycleways Cup

On Saturday Feb 6th from 9am to 6pm there will be a fundraising roller cycle at Navan Shopping Centre. This is one of our main fundraisers for the year and all proceeds go directly to funding the activities of our club members. This promises to be a very busy year, with the purchase of a new club vehicle to support our members racing in a wide variety of events in Ireland. We have members racing from U12 to over 80 at distances from a few kilometers to 2100km, including the An Post Ras
