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.

Membership will be opening in the next week or so, as soon as CI open up registrations for 2015. The club operate a separate system from CI, but to prevent confusion, we’ll open it in tandem with CI. Everything is done online, but if you’ve any questions about the club, we’ll be running an information night on November 10th.

Orwell Wheelers are running a four week programme aimed at complete beginners, to give them a grounding in basic bike skills, and bring them to a point where they can take part in the regular Sunday club spins. It will take place on Sundays in October. Click through for more details and the sign-up form!

The Gerry Brannigan Memorial Cycle will take place on Sunday the 9th of November starting at the Grasshopper Inn, Clonee, Co. Meath. (Please note that because of this event, there will be no organised cycle from Joe Daly's on this date. We hope to see you all there instead.)
