Welcome to Orwell Wheelers Cycling Club
Founded in 1948, Orwell Wheelers is amongst the biggest and most famous cycling clubs in Ireland. Based in Dublin, we cater to all levels of fitness and ability - from beginners to elite riders, male and female from youth to veteran. The club has traditionally had a strong focus on road racing and is also very active in many other areas including leisure riding, randonnée events and track racing. We run organised weekly training spins most of the year.
We welcome new members from October until March. Spins assemble at Joe Daly Cycles in Dundrum most Sundays with groups leaving at intervals starting from 9:00am. Check out our club spin info and requirements and etiquette and technique for further details.

At last, it's time for the final part of Garret Connolly's opus detailing the 2014 Marmotte. 16 Orwell members tackled it, which is coincidentally nearly the number of pages in Garret's piece. We've published the first part and second part, as well as the third part. Now enjoy the last days!
