FCC’s vision is to be the premier cycling club in the north west with an emphasis on inclusivity, fun and a focus on all levels of participation in leisure, racing, sportive, and mountain biking events. The club welcomes women, men, and young people to its ranks.
Regular runs continue on Saturday’s and Sunday’s at 0900 from the Sports Complex, Buncrana Road, Derry. All(even relative beginners) are welcome. Please join a group appropriate to your fitness and desire. Please ride a mechanically sound road bike, wear appropriate warm/bright clothing, bring water bottle, spare tube, tyre levers, a pump and something to eat. (Basic level of fitness is useful and means you are well capable of cycling 35 to 40miles.) If new it is best to start with a Saturday run and work up to a Sunday ride.
You will be welcomed by the most friendly club in the NW of Ireland!
Please note registration with our club is now due and is expected after 3 introductory rides.
