Sunday spins start from Naomh Barróg GAA Club.

Summer spins build up to 4-5 hours and start at 8 am.
Winter spins start at 9 am and take 3-4 hours.
Prior to departure Road Captain’s brief on Cycling etiquette for group spin, safety briefing, route description & location of planned cafe stop. So please arrive on time.

Thursday spins start from Naomh Barróg GAA Club at 7:15 pm.

Routes depend on those attending and take 2-3 hours.

Tuesday is hill rep day.

Meeting at Naomh Barróg GAA Club at 7:15 pm and heading for Howth Head.

A few times per year, we mix up the groups and get to cycle with those we wouldn’t normally cycle with, at a pace that suits everyone.  The main focus on these spins is good chat, good coffee & great cake.

Club activity is organised via Viber and information on Sunday spins is posted to our Facebook group on Friday evenings.
