Covid 19 – updates on club races and club runs

admin   April 13, 2021   Comments Off on Covid 19 – updates on club races and club runs

Cycling Ireland has said there should be no racing before 26th April at the earliest, so unfortunately that means that both tonight’s 10 mile time trial and next week’s 5 mile time trial are now cancelled. Hopefully we will be able to run the 10 mile time trial on 27th April – watch this space.

On a more positive note, club runs are now able to go ahead, subject to a strict limit of 15 per run. We’re planning to run four different club runs from this weekend.
