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.

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