Cycling Club

Following the success of the Clare Crusaders Malin2Mizen cycle held in July 2009, a group of the cyclists have formed the Clare Crusaders Cycling Club. The purpose is provide people interested in cycling with access to regular spins and to train for certain cycle events over the course of the cycling year. The group comes together in the spirit of providing an outlet for all levels to meet and cycle socially and is based on the very successful running group.
