Ards Cycling Club was founded in 1944, and 2019 was our 75th anniversary. To celebrate this major milestone we had some great events throughout the year – there’s a list below with links to reports from each event.
We also put together a history of the club. There are still a few copies available – contact Darren Colville, Alison McErlane, or Alastair Martin if you’d like a copy.
