Clonard Road Club
Clonard Road Club (CRC) is a road cycling club located in Clonard, Co. Meath. The club was re-formed in early 2009 by local sports people and cyclists who raced in previous guises of the club.
The club currently has about 80 club members from all areas of road cycling. The club caters for beginners through to veterans and has a number of members racing in road racing events.
You will easily recognise our club members wearing our
distinctive red, green and white club jersey with images of
the two churches and the mount of Clonard. The jersey also
displays all our club sponsors which we would like to thank
for their continued support.

We run a number of cycles during the week catering from
beginners through to training cycles, and also spins for
Saturday: During the Winter months, we meet at 10am on Saturday mornings – pace is leisurely, and spins last for about an hour-and-a-half.Sunday: We run a Sunday morning cycle all year round which starts at 9am from Mother Hubbards. You will need a reasonable level of fitness to complete this cycle.
Ladies: We also run a spin for especially for Ladies, meeting most Sunday mornings, at 9am (again from Mother Hubbards). See the Ladies page for details.
From April to September we meet on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm at Mother Hubbards.
Our Thursday evening spins are more leisurely, and are aimed at building fitness and increasing overall bike skills.
Our Tuesday evening spins are faster and cover greater distances, and are used for training by club members.
During the winter months, the Tuesday & Thursday evening
spins are changed to 10am, and both are ridden at the easier
pace, and usually last for about 1 hour.

We usually follow a number of routes, each route offering a mixture of terrain and difficulty. You can view more details on some of our cycles on our cycle routes page. You will need a road bike or hybrid bike to comfortable complete the cycle routes.
Everyone participating in club spins is required to wear a cycle helmet.
We also hold evening spinning classes in the gym of the Johnstown House Hotel. The check if the Spinning classes are currently running, and for further information on all of the club spins, please see the club calendar.
