Following the success of the Youth Training Day held in Moynalty on 6th March, The second Cycling Leinster Youth training day will be held on Saturday the 2nd April in Mullingar under the auspices of Lakeside Wheelers CC.

Further Youth Training Days are at present being organised by:

  • South East Road Club – to be held  in South Wicklow on the 23rd April
  • Acorn CC – to be held in County Kildare on the 11th June.

There was a fantastic turnout of almost 100 youth cyclists at the first Cycling Leinster Training Day in Moynalty. It was very encouraging to see so many newcomers taking part in the training day

The Youth Training Day in Mullingar on Saturday 2nd April, and the other upcoming training days are open to all club coaches and interested parties from clubs that at the moment do not have youth members but wish to develop youth sections.

Several Cycling Ireland youth coaches will be on hand in Mullingar on Saturday, including Women’s Commission coaches Orla Hendron and Róisín Kennedy.
