Sliabh Luachra Cycling Juvenile Club

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club was established in July 2012 with the juvenile section of the Club commencing in 2015

Juveniles are the long term development for our Cycling Club. We are currently recruiting new juvenile members to join our Club.  The juveniles will need to be in 5th or 6th class in National School or in Secondary level education. We have a number of experienced adults trained by Cycling Ireland in foundation coaching who will coach these new members.

Our plan for 2017 is to commence coaching the new members with a 4-6 week training block in a local national school ground. During this period our new members will learn various bike skills that will ensure they are confident, safe and courteous cyclists when on the road. After several weeks of training we take the kids to leisure events locally (in our newly purchased Club Minibus) to challenge themselves at longer distance and with a little bit more experience we will participate in competitive races for those who wish to do so.

Our open night for parents and new juvenile members is

Thursday night March 16th

in Teach Iosagin Rathmore (at the rear of Church)

at 8pm

with juvenile training to commence on the following Saturday (18th March) at 9am.

Feel free to come along on the night.

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club handed over proceeds from the Tour of Sliabh Luachra 2015 to the matron of Millstreet Community Hospital, Margaret Collins.  The money will be used to purchase beds, mattresses and a garden bench.  We were treated to a delicious raspberry roulade, cakes and a welcome cup of tea during our visit to the hospital.

Pictured  at the front of the hospital are Sineád McCarthy, Margaret Collins, Hannelie O’Connor and Joan Collins.
