A very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all our club members and their families and friends.

2012 was a great year for the Garda Cycling Club, with Garda CC riders competing in all the major racing & leisure events nationwide. In September 2012 a Garda men’s & ladies team competed in the European Police Cycling Championships in Ploeren, France, where the Garda ladies took silver (Caroline RYAN) in the individual Time Trial, gold in the Time Trial (team event) and gold in the individual road race (Sandra FITZGERALD).

2012 was ‘topped off’ with our ‘Evening with the Roches’, which was undoubtedly the event of the Irish cycling calendar!!!!

In 2013, a Garda CC men’s team will compete in the An Post Ras in May 2013, followed by a Garda CC ladies team competing in Ras na mBan in September 2013. This in addition to the regular Club events, which include the ‘Stubborn Mule Sportive’ in May 2013, makes 2013 a very very busy year for the Club.

If you’re interested in joining Garda CC, for either leisure or racing, please follow the instructions on our ‘JOIN’ page.

A special THANK YOU to our Club sponsors in 2011, 2012 & 2013 – RICHIES BIKESTORE, Swords Village, Co. Dublin & ETHOS ENGINEERING, Sandyford, Co. Dublin and to Westmanstown Sports & Leisure Centre, Clonsilla, Dublin 15 for their continued support and facilities.

Thank you to Enright Transport Services, Lillis O’Donnell Ford, Irish Ferries, Saint Raphael’s Garda Credit Union & Coiste Siamsa an Garda Siochana  for their support in respect of the European Police Cycling Championships.
