Sponsors for 2019/2020 seasons :

On behalf of the GoTri family of clubs and the training facility we would like to say a huge thank you to the last committee for their time and their efforts to build the club in all aspects. Achieving great numbers in the Cycle for Ethan, bringing new members into the sport and for hosting two great races, the obvious being the hosting of the national A3/ Masters championships and the M&M memorial classic.

A lot more goes on that most will see or remember but we at the say thank you and wish you many happy miles with smiles pedaling in the years to come and look forward to meeting you on the coffee spins.

yours in sports


Train smart : Train happy

Thanks you's

Happy New Year to you. I am writing to you on behalf of your new committee to update you on our plans for the future. Firstly, just to let you unknown(8)know who the new committee are:

Chairman             Neil Gillespie
Treasurer            Fiachra O’Murchu
Secretary             Shirley Hennigar
Members            Mairead Elliot, Dermot Dunne and Stephan Teeling Lynch

We have also co-opted Kieran Moloney onto the committee as our BMX officer

The club has enthusiastic plans to further build on our progress made over the last 2 years under the stewardship of Richard Quinn. Our key plans centre around the following:

  • Further improving our 4 Cycling Ireland Events so that they become well established on the cycling calendar
  • Developing our junior membership and expanding this section of the club. We will be supporting Kieran Moloney’s efforts to try and establish a BMX pump track in the town
  • Expanding the club membership and letting people know that we encourage all levels and that there is room for all within the club
  • Developing and promoting the sportive aspect of the club
  • Developing our racing team


We would like to thank M&G Transport for their support over the last two years and would especially like to thank JP Freight and Velocity Bike Shop who are continuing their sponsorship for another 2 years. They will be joined by InEx Painting and Decorating (James Bullman and Kieran Murray) and by Backballer. We look forward to a fruitful relationship with all of our sponsors.


This year we are running the following official events and will be asking for your support in the organisation and running of them:

  • Cycle for Ethan
  • Clare TT Championship
  • Club Rothaiochta Classic
  • M&M Classic

We will also be running our Tuesday night races from April. These are key to the club as they are our main source of income and will help us to realise our plans for the club. We will require all club members to marshal for 2 nights over the 12 weeks. This saves us having to depend on the same people each week which has been the case in the past. We need you to help us out on this.


The fees for the year will be as follows:

Adult members                €50
Junior member                 €10

The slight increase is necessary in order to help us achieve the targets for the club. Velocity bike shop have promised us a €10 gift voucher for each member who signs up before 31st Jan. Registration can be carried out on the CI website or by giving a completed application form to Shirley.

We would encourage all of our members to register with Cycling Ireland. They provide a 3rd party insurance as party of their membership. We would ask that all who participate in our group rides are mebers of either CI or TI so that we have some insurance cover. We believe that there will be an increasing gap between Sportif entry fees for members and non-members in 2017, so you will soon earn your money back.

We would genuinely value your input and would encourage anyone with ideas or issues to please bring them to any of the committee members. We hope you are all looking forward to a year of miles with smiles.


2017 Committee


Club Rules

1. Club Membership/Cycling Ireland/Tri Irl membership ( all are welcome to join the team, we encourage all to take part and become active members, If your taking part in our training sessions, please join the club. 3 session rule, you don't have to become a full member, if part of another team you can take out associate membership, sure you never know after a while you might jump ship altogether -- 🙂

Mud guards for your bike - This is a priority issue in winter and don't be offended if your told to sit at the back of the group for the complete duration of the spin !! if your that selfish not to respect the gob of your fellow cyclists and team mates then you may as well draft for the entire spin. Ass savers do not constitute mudguards, you need full length and fully functional type mudguards such as cruds
