    I’m thinking of joining the club, where can I get the form?
    Secondly, for this coming Sunday Spins, what time do you start? Still 9.00 or already moved to 8.30am?

      Sunday Spins have reverted back to 8:30am and we meet at the Ballalley Car Park across from the Sacred Heart Secondary School.

      If you enjoy the spin joining the Club is easy. All we need is a copy of your drivers licence for proof of address and the appropriate fee. For normal membership this is € 50.
