Welcome to Clontarf Cycling Club
Contarf Cycling club started in 2012 as an idea between a group of like-minded mad hatters with the plan to start a small club for weekend spins.
PJ Gallagher, Ger Devine, Ronan O’Neill and Diarmaid McStay came together and the cycling club seed were sown. Through great perseverance and dedication, our cycling club was soon formed.
What started out as an idea is now a fully-fledged Cycling Ireland affiliated club with over 180 members and counting. Members range from early 20’s to the 60+ both female and male.
The club caters for all newcomers with a mantra that all who start together finish together. There are various groups and abilities and groups are set up to cater for all levels: beginner, leisure, active and racing abilities.
Cathal Miller our former Chairman has represented Ireland at the Paralympics in both Beijing 2008 and London 2012 and is an integral part of our ethos and what we stand for as a club.
Anne miller is our current Chairwoman, Anne has been involved in the club since 2013 and has worked on every aspect of the running of the club . A regular cyclist herself on group spins , her ethos of fitness, friendships and maintaining great mental health is what our club represents .
Our club, Clontarf Cycling Club is all inclusive and for all cycling abilities. We believe that fitness and fun can be combined through organised and social membership of our club. We represent our community, support our community and charitable causes through our sport. We respect and appreciate our membership and ensure their development, safety and well being are combined with fun and active participation. We aim to represent our sponsors, club and cycling in Ireland to the highest of standards.
