Youth & U23 Women’s Training Camp:

Featuring special guest: Paralympic & Para-World Champion Eve McCrystal


The first of three scheduled Youth training camps will take place during the mid-term break, from Thursday 15th February – Sat 17th February.

This camp will now form part of the new Youth Development programme.  

The format will give the riders a chance to try some of the many disciplines within cycling (Road / Track / Off-Road).

Th newly refurbished Avon Ri, Adventure Centre in Co. Wicklow will again be the base for the weekend.

After a busy day on the bike, the young riders will learn about some of the vital skills that will help support them as they develop as a cyclist.  We will have some talks on  training advice, race preparation and goal setting.
