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 60 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.
Sunday Racing Group: We run a Sunday morning cycle all year round which starts at 8.30am. The pace is approx 30-35kmh and lasts for about 2.30-3.30hrs. You will need a good level of fitness to complete this cycle.
Sunday Leisure Group: We run a Sunday morning cycle which starts at 8.30am @ Mother Hubbards. The pace is controlled at approx 25kmh which will suit most levels of ability. The spin lasts for about 1-2hrs.
Tuesday & Thursday:
From April to September we meet on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm at Mother Hubbards.
Our Tuesday evening spins are more leisurely, and are aimed at building fitness and increasing overall bike skills.
Our Thursday evening spins are faster and cover greater distances, and are used for training by club members.
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 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 community hall in Clonard Village. These take place on Monday’s throughout the winter months.
