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.

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!
Update: all signed up participants will have received an email, but the last class has been postponed until the 2nd November.

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.)

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!

With his election as club president earlier in the month, we felt that now was a great time to revisit Denis Gleeson' five minute interview! Have a read to get a sense of the man who will be leading the club into 2015!
