The calendar for this year's inter-club league has been finalised. The league will kick off with its usual early season opener on Sunday, February 26th, with a race over the Dorey's Forge circuit in Batterstown.

The club is holding an open day at the Sundrive Road track on Saturday, January 21. Those who are interested in racing on the track next year are invited to attend.

The first meeting for the masters track team will take place on Wednesday, January 11th at Uncle Tom's Cabin in Dundrum and 7pm.

Following the success of Orwell riders Orla Hendron, Stephen McNally and Aideen Collard at the World Masters Track Championships over the past two years, the club has decided to put together a masters track team and is is looking for expressions of interest.

The club has a number of events planned over Christmas, which will kick off on Saturday night with our Christmas party in Doheny & Nesbitts.

Dave Tansey was unanimously elected as Orwell’s new president at last night’s AGM.  Tansey takes over from Eddie Lynch, who had served for three years. During Lynch’s time in charge, the club has grown to become the largest in Ireland, with nearly 300 members.

The club weekend away will be in Portlaoise this year, on the 18th and 19th of November. We will be staying in the Heritage Hotel in Portlaoise and doing a spin in the Slieve Blooms on Saturday morning before dinner on Saturday night. 

The Irish Hospice Foundation has sent a letter of thanks to all those who organised or participated in the Orwell Wheelers Randonnée this year. Here is a copy of the letter .

Orwell Wheelers had a strong representation at this year’s Rás na mBan with the club fielding its own team and a further two riders selected to race on the Leinster squad.
