If you’re a new member or an existing member November 25th is a date you need to save. We have a club open evening from 6-7.30pm in Moynan’s Bike Shop. For new members, its an information evening and a chance to meet existing members. No payment is needed as your membership is free for the first year. For existing members, you can pay your 2020 NTW club membership along with your cycling Ireland membership for 2020. This is the first year everyones CI license will expire on December 31st so they need to be renewed!
Club Turbo Sessions
We had a great turn out at turbo both nights. All welcome to join. We would encourage members to come on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in Ballycommon to take part in these worthwhile winter training sessions as we have an exciting agenda being put in place for 2020.

Numbers were down this weekend as it was cold and misty, however, there were still some brave (or stupid) participants out on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday morning we had a group at 7.30am and at 9. On Sunday we also had 2 spins, both meeting at Moynan’s Bike Shop, Nenagh. We welcomed a new member to the Sunday spin. We hope you enjoyed your first spin with NTW Patrick and we look forward to seeing you on the road! To any other cycling enthusiasts we encourage you to contact the club and come to either turbos and the weekend spins. This weeks spin departs from Moyan’s this Sunday at 9am.
