WOW - Off Road - Phoenix CC

Registration for Women on Wheels Off Road 2022


Event Description:


Cycling Ireland's Gearing Up is a progressive mountain bike skills programme designed for beginners.  It covers the fundamental skills required for cycling in an off-road environment.

This course is coached by Julie Rea from Phoenix Cycling Club at Barnetts Demense, Belfast.

'I’ve been mountain biking and road cycling for 12 years. I joined Phoenix Cycling Club and my skill and fitness level increased dramatically as a result. But the best thing about joining a club is the friends you make and the opportunities that come your way. In 2019 along with my club mate Gillian we ran a very successful Women on Wheels programme for Road cycling. I’m excited to be able to run a similar programme for women wanting to get involved in mountain biking. This course will give you the skills to ride your mountain bike safely and confidently down most trails.'

6 sessions held weekly starting on Thursday 16th June, 6.30pm at Barnetts Demense.

Requirements - a working mountain bike, helmet, gloves and the desire to have fun!

Please note the registration fee includes a Cycling Ireland Leisure Membership valid until 31st Dec 2022.
