Women's Crit League
Orwell have been running a women's crit league in some format since 2010, beginning with Winning Solutions sponsoring prizes before Wheelworx came on board. The Sandyford-based criteriums were ably run by Aideen Collard, Dave McLoughlin, Jen Sheridan and a merry band of helpers.
They gradually incorporated Corkagh Park when it opened, and eventually the league moved there but added a road race and time trials for variety. Orla Hendron and Mags Donnelly took on the task of organisers since 2014, and StickyBottle.com have latterly come on board as sponsors.

The 2016 Orwell Wheelers' Women's Crit Series starts with a time trial on Tuesday April 5th at Black Bull, Co Meath. The six race series will follow the same format as recent years, with the time trial to be followed by three rounds of Tuesday night racing at Corkagh Park and a road race in Brittas. The sixth and final round of the league will be another time trial in Black Bull on the same course as round one, giving riders the opportunity to compare their performance over the six week period.
