Please have a read of the information below before you head out on your next group cycle. Stay safe and have fun!
Note: Triathlon Ireland or Cycling Ireland membership is compulsory for organized club events.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
Before setting off on any cycle – group or individual – each cyclist (from experienced to novice) should go through the following basic checklist – this should make your cycle safe, enjoyable and easier:
RULES OF THE ROAD – Club Conduct
Adhere to the rules of the road – they are there for a reason – to protect you and others. And remember….you’re representing the club when you’re out there, particularly if you’re wearing the club gear!!
Everyone wants a good training session when they’re out cycling. But where possible, and for the more experienced club members, it would be great if we could keep an eye on fellow club members on cycles, to ensure nobody gets lost or dropped from the pack, or injured.
If this happens it is good to ensure they are ok to return home themselves while the others go on, or that they’re with someone if they need help due to injury or some other circumstance.
