Without the mountain bike clubs, there would be no mountain bike trails. We would all still be cycling on walking trails. To their credit, their on-going consultation process with Coilte and the various county councils has resulted in proper MTB trails being built around Ireland. Their contribution has made mountain biking safer for every one. If you are interested in mountain bike racing then you will need a license from cycling ireland which is available either directly or through your local club. Clubs run regular race meets and training sessions. They also have qualified instructors such as SMBLA Guides who can advise you how best to tackle the trails. You will also get to meet like minded people who share similar interests. To find your local cycling club click here.
Mountain Bike Clubs in Ireland
We know a great deal of people on the trails are not members of a cycling club. Although our site is geared to non club members, we do believe that a great place to start for a beginner is with a local club. A club is also indispensable if you intend racing. We list over forty Irish mountain bike clubs from Antrim to Wicklow. So If you need to find your local club you can find it on MountainBiking.ie.
