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.

One set of results which fell through the cracks, but absolutely deserves to be highlighted and showcased are the recent Orwell performances at the Leinster Track Champs. Before heading off to the Worlds, Orla Hendron achieved double silver, but was outdone by Naoise Sheridan who won both silver and gold! Sean Murnane also featured, taking home double bronze! Full details below!

Dave T will be running one of his excellent puncture repair workshops next Monday in Joe Daly Cycles. Bring a front wheel, a spare tube, a set of tyre levers and a pump for your practice, and show up to the shop at 19.00, and he'll teach you everything you need to know. Also a good opportunity to ask him any basic maintenance questions you've always wanted an answer to!
