Mentoring Programme 2019
March 10 @ 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
A 6 weeks beginners programme.
Since the formation of the club we have aspired to run a mentoring programme each spring.
The format of the programme is aimed at gradual increase in distance and with that confidence for the cyclist. The routes will move from a modest 17 km culminating in a 55 km cycle to Listowel on the final day.
The club aims are to have the cyclists confident and proficient in cycling on roads in a group manner (two abreast).
By the end of the programme you will be ready to cycle as part of the Chain Gang mainstream within the various groups eg. 22 Group. Many cyclists use this as a platform to ready themselves for sportives such as the Ring of Beara and Ring of Kerry.
- Bicycle. Preferably a road bike, but starting off a City type bicycle is acceptable.
- Cycling gear. Helmet, sports clothing, sports or cycling shoes, water bottle, snack, mini pump, spare inner tube and tools and a water proof jacket.
- Money. All our spins involve the mandatory coffee stop. So enough money to cover a coffee and scone.
- Membership. Although we offer 2 free cycles to new comers, it is advised to join the club and Cycling Ireland asap. as this covers insurance and all the benefits of CI membership. Cost is €70. Membership form.
