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
Our list of open road races for 2016 is as follows:
- Cycleways Cup, Sunday 28th Feb
- Summer League starts early May (TBC)
- Sean Nolan Meath Grand Prix, Sunday 5th June
- Ballivor GP, Saturday 2nd July
- Tommy Brady Robinstown, Saturday 16th July
- Mountnugent GP, Saturday 30th July

Navan Road Club will host the Ballivor GP road race on Saturday 5th July. Sign-on will be open from 5:30pm in McLoughlins pub Ballivor, with racing due to start at 7pm. It is the usual 18km circuit, which will be covered 3 times, with the finish-line back in Ballivor outside McLoughlins pub on the main street. The circuit is mainly flat and with the race run on a handicapped basis it makes for some very fast racing.!!
