Juvenile Training

Sliabh Luachra Cycling Club was established in July 2012 with the juvenile section of the Club commencing in 2105.

Juveniles are the long term development for our Cycling Club. We are currently recruiting new juvenile members to join our Club.  The juveniles will need to be in 5th or 6th class in National School or in Secondary level education. We have a number of experienced adults trained by Cycling Ireland in foundation coaching who will coach these new members.

Our plan for 2017 is to commence coaching the new members with a 4-6 week training block in a local national school ground. During this period our new members will learn various bike skills that will ensure they are confident, safe and courteous cyclists when on the road. After several weeks of training we take the kids to leisure events locally (in our newly purchased Club Minibus) to challenge themselves at longer distance and with a little bit more experience we will participate in competitive races for those who wish to do so.

Our open night for parents and new juvenile members is
