Note that FCC is starting a 4 week’s beginner’s session on Saturday Oct 04 from the Sports complex, Buncrana Road, Derry. Assemble at 0900 with your road bike in good mechanical order, warmly dressed in cycling gear (ready for our weather), with a water bottle, a banana, a spare tube with tyre levers and wearing your helmet.
FCC’s vision is to be the premier cycling club in the north west with an emphasis on inclusivity, fun and a focus on all levels of participation in leisure, racing, sportive, and mountain biking events. The club welcomes women, men, and young people to its ranks.
If you a have basic cycling fitness please join our Saturday runs at 0900 from the sport complex, Buncrana Road, L’Derry. You will be welcomed by the most friendly club in the NW of Ireland! (Basic level of fitness means you are well capable of cycling 35 to 40 m.)
Sunday club runs leave the complex, Buncrana Road at 0900. They cover 100 km or so at this time of year. They are geared for the more experienced rider. If new it is best to start with a Saturday run and work in to a Sunday ride.
Please note registration with our club is expected after 3 introductory rides.
