Unfortunately the Orwell Women's Crit Series had to be cancelled for 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid restrictions in place at the time but we are now delighted to announce that Orwell Wheelers will be hosting a new event for 2021 and the overall pizes will be sponsored by our loyal friends Appleby Jewellers

The APPLEBY WOMEN'S EVENING STAGE RACE welcomes all levels and abilities of women racing from absolute beginners to experienced veterans from all clubs and interested parties. We aim to offer women new to the racing scene an introduction and foundation upon which to develop, while giving more experienced riders a solid platform to progress their racing. There will be races and prizes for the A and B groups as used in Corkagh Park for the women's racing series.

The three race series will commence with the Orwell hosted round of racing in Corkagh Park on Tuesday the 10th of August.  Prizes for this nights racing will be sponsored by Joe Daly Cycles, Dundrum.

Round two of the series will be a short but testing TT on the Pine Valley course on Wednesday the 11th of August.

The third and final round will take place on the race track in Mondello, Caragh, Co. Kildare on Thursday the 12th of August. This will be one race but with handicapped groups - with the hope that the B group will get a chance to test themselves against the A group while giving the As the challenge of the chase

The overall prize giving will follow the Mondello Race.  Appleby Jewellers are very kindly donating vouchers to first, second and third place in each category.

Pre-registration only - no late entries.



TIME TRIAL - The course is just short of 5K, and rises gradually for the first 4 of that before kicking up sharply in the final kilometre. Segment on strava.

We will be using online registration for the Time Trials.  The first rider will be off at 19:00. A start list will be published the night before giving your start time, so you should show make sure you know when your own start is, and show up to the start line at least 3 minutes before your start time.

There is to be no warming up on the course, so when you are ready to go you should spin down to the start, and do any further warming up in the area of Glencullen village.

TT bikes/wheels and aero kit are all allowed, though they won't provide a massive advantage on this course. We strongly recommend using a rear light, as it may be getting dark as later finishers are returning.

If you catch another rider (good for you!) check that there is no traffic coming up behind you before pulling out, and give them loads of room as you pass. Remember they may have no notion that you're steaming through until you have actually passed them. On the other hand, if you are caught, keep on going at your own pace, don't be tempted to try sit on to the rider who has passed you.

When you cross the finish line roll on through, pull over further down the road and don't turn around before checking that it is safe to do so. Anyone doing a U-turn in the vicinity of the finish line will be disqualified. Please don't hassle the timekeepers for your time- there's no problem asking, but make sure to do it at a time when there aren't any riders coming in.

Our Friends at Glencullen Adventure Park are very kindly allowing us to use their car park as there is no other parking in the area. Parking is €2 - you will need a coin for the barrier when you are leaving.  if you would like a good warm up why not park down the hill in Kilternan or Stepaside and ride up?



Round 3 of the Appleby Women's Evening Stage Race is in Mondello. This will be a single race with up to 4 handicapped groups with the B2 group off first at 7.30pm

Parking - there is plenty of parking at Mondello and it is on the "infield" section of the track. To access the parking you must drive across the finish straight. Please arrive in plenty of time so that you are not interfering with the warm up laps or race. Please stop and check the course is clear before crossing the track. Under no circumstance are cars allowed to drive the course.

Directions: www.mondellopark.ie/directions/
Circuit: www.strava.com/segments/7307331


1. Change gears before coming into corner/bend - use easier gears so you can sprint out of corner. Mondello has a kick up out of many of the bends - try and arrive in time to do some warm up laps and get used to the course. 

2. Keep the inside pedal up as you go around the bend if it’s too tight to pedal through

3. Feather your brakes going into corner. Again warm up laps to get to know the course will help here

4. Go wide entering corner/bend and approach the corner/bend at the apex

5. Sprint out of corners and once on top of gear then start changing gears 

6. Hold wheel as close as you can when approaching bend as will give you better chance of staying on wheel exiting

7. Keep your head up and look where you want to to especially as you ride through the corners. 

8. keep your line as you ride through the corners. 

9. many people don’t wear gloves in training but we always recommend them for racing as a layer of protection in case of crashes. 



 The overall league prizegiving will take place immediately after the race.
