Cycling Promotion Day

Swinford Cycling Club are hosting a cycle promotion day on Sunday 22nd February in the Amenity Park, Swinford at 10:30am.

This event is free and open to all levels of cyclist, but beginners are especially welcomed. It is planned to conduct presentations on club activities, bike repairs, tips on purchasing your bike, bike fittings, clothing and road safety. Following the presentations, there will be a short cycle for all bike riders to enjoy. There is no obligation on anyone to participate in this cycle but in order to experience the merits and enjoyment of group cycling, it is hoped that most people will join in. If you do intend to cycle, the organisers ask that you would ensure your bike is in proper working order and that you are in possession of a cycling helmet.
