What should I bring on my first spin?

Cycling helmet (no helmet, no spin)



Inner tube

Gas/ pump


Money for coffee stop


Preparing for my first spin:

Make sure your bike is road worthy - check tyres are pumped to correct pressure, brakes and gears are working, chain is clean and oiled sufficiently, mud guards are mandatory during the winter months.


What are the rules of the Club?

We have a club constitution & charter. These are available under the members section of our website. You will be issued with a password once you join the club.

Where do I get Club gear?

We are lucky to have excellent cycling gear with the club logo available. Clothing orders are placed regularly and we will let everyone know via social media when this is.

What age can you join the club?

We accept young adults from age 16 as long as their parent/ guardian is a member and attends at least 6 initial spins with them. From age 18 they can spin on their own. Our child protection officer is on hand to discuss any concerns.

What happens if I have an accident on a spin?

We have a number of first aiders at the club and a first aid kit on all spins. All accidents are reported to the Club Safety officer. We also insist that all members wear an ICE (in case of emergency) tag on their helmet during spins. These can be ordered through our Safety Officer.

What will happen on my first spin?

Every new member, regardless of cycling experience will join an introductory spin. This is to make sure you are comfortable on a bike, know the rules of the road and how to cycle in a group. Once we are happy you are comfortable with all this you will move in to one of four cycle groups, depending on your ability. Your SAFETY is PARAMOUNT to us!

Do I have to be a member to join Club spins?

You get THREE complimentary spins before deciding if you wish to join our club.  After the third spin you must join our club to continue cycling with us.  This is mainly to make sure you have liability insurance through Cycling Ireland, which is included in your membership fee.

How far do you cycle and at what speed?

This varies each week and depends on what group you are in. Average spins are 50km – 100km with obligatory ‘coffee & cake’ stop halfway around. Spins are announced midweek via social media. Le Tour ave 22 Km/h, Giro/ Transition ave 25 km/h, Le Vuelta ave. 28 Km/h

Who runs the spins?

We have a number of excellent ‘Captains’ who set the route, maintain the pace, and make sure everyone cycles safely.

Can I get involved in the running of the Club?

Absolutely! This is a club run by its elected members. Everyone is welcome to make suggestions. If you want to be more involved then you can put your name forward to be a member of the committee at the AGM each year.
