Official training for Galway Cycle 2019 will begin in January. From here, distances will increase by 10km each week.
You must attend at least 2 mandatory cycles throughout the training – one in February and one in March. You have a choice of 2 weekends in each month. These cycles are enforced to ensure that all participants are comfortable with cycling in a group prior to the weekend of the cycle.
Training leaves from the gates of the South Campus of Maynooth University each Saturday and Sunday at 10am (longer cycles later in training may leave at 9am). Please keep an eye on the Facebook page for the latest updates on training (e.g. weather, etc.).
All cyclists must satisfy the following prerequisites to attend training and/or to take part in the Galway Cycle event:
- You must hold either a Leisure or Competition membership with Cycling Ireland.
- You must wear a helmet on all cycles with the club.
- Your bicycle must have a red rear light
- Your bicycle must have a rear mudguard (see PDF below for more details)
