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.

There's some debate on the forum over who exactly is in this photo posted by Tony McDowell. Taken at the Gorey 3 Day in 1990 and published in an Irish Cycling Review, we've nearly identified everyone. If you think you might know, go have a look at the thread!
