So to catch you all up on the latest developments on Galway Cycle 2018, Friends of the Coombe were selected at the AGM as our charity partner for 2018. They put forward a very deserving project, for which we hit the road now, ahead of the Cycle Weekend, which will take place 6th-8th April, 2018.
We also realise that updates have been a little sparse to the website to date, and let’s just say watch this space, as an explanation will be forthcoming soon!
Want an extra hoodie? Or hoodies for the kids? Now’s your chance to order one. While all registered participants will receive a hoodie as part of their registration, for the 30th Galway Cycle, we’re offering you the chance to buy additional limited edition souvenir hoodies, and it’s as simple as selecting the size you want from the appropriate menu below, and clicking Buy Now! Prices for the hoodies are as follows:
- Adult Hoodie: €25
- Child Hoodie: €15
Size guide for the Children’s Hoodies is available here
If you have any questions about the hoodies and ordering them, please contact email@example.com. Any ordered hoodies will be available for collection at the final open meeting, on April 4th.
Unfortunately the deadline for ordering hoodies for children has passed, as the order had to be placed further in advance with our supplier. If you are looking at purchasing for an older child, you may be able to order a smaller-sized adult hoodie as an alternative (see above).
The first Open Meeting for Galway Cycle 2017 is due to take place on Tuesday the 31st of January at 7:30 p.m. in JH1. This meeting is an opportunity for both cyclists and collectors or anybody else who may be interested in joining us this year to come along and find out more. We will be giving an overview of the weekend so you know what to expect. We will also have representatives from this years charity the National Rehabilitation Hospital Paediatric Unit to share some more with you.

Upcoming Fundraising Events
The annual table quiz is due to take place at the end of the month on Tuesday the 31st of January. This coincides with the Open Meeting so please do join us afterwards in Brady’s Clockhouse Pub on the Main Street in Maynooth for a fun filled evening. This event is due to kick off at 9p.m.
Training cycles have officially commenced so I hope you are all ready to get back on your bike. Departure is at 10am sharp so please be there at least 15 minutes early. Remember that it is mandatory for all cyclists to have valid Cycling Ireland insurance for the training cycles. Please bring a copy of your number (printed or on your phone) for your first training spin and we will give you a sticker for your helmet so that we know for future training spins. If you have any queries/questions feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
