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.
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.)
Please remember that your road bike must be in good mechanical order, dress warmly ready for our weather, carry a water bottle, a banana, a spare tube with tyre levers and wear a helmet.
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.
