Due to the great success Bray Wheelers committee members will continue to run beginner spins starting from Kilmacanogue flyover at 9.45am sharp.
The spins will be ideal for all new and inexperienced members.
To best cater for the beginners the club committee and club coaches have decided to enforce an age limit for the beginners spin.
Everybody attending the beginners spin must be 13 years of age or older.
As a club we run a full calendar of events for our youth members and our club coaches feel that this is more suitable option for our youth members to progress with their cycling.

If you, or your child, qualifies for a free Bray Wheelers jersey, as detailed below, please come to the clubhouse this Thurs 1st Sept at 7.30pm to collect a jersey. With a view to increasing participation among youth members in Bray Wheelers, we are offering a free club jersey for youth members who participate in six or more Bray Wheelers cycling events, or open races on behalf of the club, (not including the Sprocket Rocket course). Funding for this was from a grant that was received and also from funds raised at the Paddy Martin Randonnee for the youth section. If you have taken part in six events this season, please contact Mark Loughran or
Mark Murphy If you have not had the chance to take part as of yet, you still have until the end of the year to take part in six events. The club youth spins will be on every second Sunday afternoon until the end of the year.
