Youth Tour of Scotland – April 5 - 8

We were delighted to receive the official confirmation this week that our entry to this prestigious event has been accepted. This event was one of the highlights of 2018 and we are over the moon to be going back again!

One of the reasons we got in last year and kept our place this year, is that we send a Girls team as well as a Boys team . This commitment to Girls and Women's cycling is something that we take seriously as a club - keep up the great work everyone!



Don't forget to keep Wednesday night the 13th of March free for the Launch of the Summer Leisure & Racing Program. We will be meeting in The Union Cafe, Beacon South Quarter at 7.30pm. It's near Dunnes Stores and only a few minutes walk from the Stillorgan Luas stop.  We are looking forward to seeing as many of you there as possible, catching up on the off season cycling and hatching plans for the summer!
