A Little History of our Club:
North Tipperary Wheelers origins started as Drombane CC in the early 1970’s. It gradually became Nenagh orientated and was renamed the North Tipperary Wheelers to incorporate the surrounding areas. It fizzled out in the early 1980’s but with some effort from a few determined souls it was resurrected in 1987 and is going strong since… Some 30 years in 2017 and over 100 members on the books! Club members take part in many aspects of the sport: road cycling, complete sportives, club training spins, club competitions, open races and mountain biking. We try to cater for everyone at all levels. We always have room for another friendly face though so please do come along to one of our cycles if you would like to see what it’s all about, you’ll be very welcome…
We have regular club spins every week. More details on the training spins page.
We get up to lots during the year in all aspects of cycling:
