Training Plan

Charity, Cycling and Craic!

Official training for Galway Cycle 2018 will begin in January. From here, distances will increase by 10km each week.

You must attend at least 2 mandatory cycles throughout the training – one in February and one in March. You have a choice of 2 weekends in each month. These cycles are enforced to ensure that all participants are comfortable with cycling in a group prior to the weekend of the cycle.

Training leaves from the gates of the South Campus of Maynooth University each Saturday and Sunday at 10am (longer cycles later in training may leave at 9am).  Please keep an eye on the Facebook page for the latest updates on training (e.g. weather, etc.)

If you have any questions on this, or think you can’t attend the requisite mandatory cycles, please contact
