Youth and Beginners Spins – Spring 2017

Categories: Beginners,News,Racing,Training,Underage,Up Coming Events

Hi All

Please see details below on the up coming U16s and Beginners Spins.

We now have a schedule of spins, which will include training sessions, and skills sessions, to prepare for racing and sportives.

There will be qualified Cycling Ireland coaches there to assist with an introduction to club and group cycling. Cycling skills will be covered for those who wish to continue on to cycling sportive and racing.

Non members are welcome to come along and try it out, and if you like the spins, you can consider joining the club (which is free for youth members).

Central to that goal, is the preparation for the Bray Wheelers Club Racing Season, which will begin towards the end of April 2017.

And this will be also for those who do not wish to race, but wish to increase skills and fitness for sportives etc.

This will also provide a basis in fitness and bunch racing skills, for anyone who might wish to go on to Open Racing.

There will be a range of Youth prizes on offer at the club races this year, so its a good incentive to start racing.

Some of the group have already done a season of racing, and some are about to do their first races.

These spins will meet at the Bray Wheelers Clubhouse, which is at the end of schools road, just off the Boghall Road (where the firestation is located), in Bray, County Wicklow.

Meeting time is 9.30am sharp

Departure time is 9.40am sharp

Youth riders must be 14 years or older.
