Sprocket Rocket sessions for young children will start in November at St Columb’s park, Derry. Please check back for start date.
If you a have basic cycling fitness please join our Saturday runs at 0900 from the sport complex, Buncrana Road, L’Derry. You will be welcomed by the most friendly club in the NW of Ireland! (Basic level of fitness means you are well capable of cycling 35 to 40 m.)
Sunday club runs leave the complex, Buncrana Road at 0900. They cover 100 km or so at this time of year. They are geared for the more experienced rider. If new it is best to start with a Saturday run and work in to a Sunday ride.
Please note registration with our club is expected after 3 introductory rides.
