Would you like to learn to be a road cyclist?
Would you like to be able to ride the 77km Tour de Kilkenny on 30 July?
Marble City Cyclers will resume their beginners / return to cycling sessions from Monday 11th April at 7.00pm and each Monday night until late June.
If you would like to gradually improve your proficiency and fitness this is an excellent way to begin. It is also a great opportunity for lads and lasses who have previously cycled but have not done so for a while to return to this healthy hobby.
Traditionally one of the targets that many of our beginners reach is the 77km route of Tour de Kilkenny, a huge event taking place this year on 30 July.
This is a great way to become a road cyclist as you will learn how to cycle safely in a disciplined group. Learning all the techniques needed to become an integral part of a cycling peloton. You will learn how to maneuver at speed, and how to manage yourself safely on the road.
You will gradually improve your fitness and begin to develop your capacity to travel substantial distances on your bike.
What do you need to start? MCC is a road cycling club, so you need a road-bike in decent condition. This means having dropped handlebars and no baggage on your bike. You need working brakes and a cycling helmet. A water bottle is important too.
Spins will take place every Monday night at 7.00pm beginning from Laharts Garages, Waterford Road. The spins are guided by club members.
For further information contact any club member (we have over 130 members in the area), or Tommy 0868192947 or Betty 0868600899.
