Swinford Cycling Club Spinning Classes

Spinning Classes commenced on Monday 24th November at 8pm in Community Centre, Swinford. Registration will start at 7.30pm and the classes will run for five weeks. The total cost to members (Swinford CC or Swinford Tri) will be €15 or if paying by the night €5 per session. The cost to non members will be €20 for the full five weeks.

Though some of the club members have expressed an interest in doing a run beforehand it is important that spinning starts on time so perhaps it may be best to leave that on hold until after Monday night.

We have a few spare turbo trainers which can be made available if required. These will be given out on a first come first served basis.

Swinford Cycling Club would also like to remind you that they hold a cycle every Sunday morning departing at 9:15am sharp from Corrib Oil. There are various routes available to cater for all categories of cyclist from the novice right up to the more experienced bike rider.

All route maps and other updates are posted weekly on the Swinford Cycle Club Facebook page.
