Note to anyone taking part in Club Spins:
Whilst everyone is welcome to join in the club spins, please be aware that only paid up members of the club, with at least the standard Cycling Ireland License, are insured while taking part in the spins.
Helmets are a MUST!!! no one is allowed on a club spin or race without one, and no one should ever go out on their bike without wearing one, no matter how short their journey!!
Of course, your helmet has to be worn correctly, otherwise it is all but useless. Here is a guide on exactly how you should pick out a helmet when buying a new one, and how to fit it correctly…
We would encourage anyone interested in coming out regularly with us, to at least take out a CI license to ensure they have adequate insurance cover (and of course we’d be happy to see you joining the club too!)
