A club with people and community at heart
We are a thriving, vibrant and friendly local cycling club with approximately 120 members. Our mission is to make cycling accessible and enjoyable for all and we welcome all ages and abilities from the casual weekend rider to the more committed enthusiast. At the heart of everything we do is a sense of camaraderie.
Organised spins for all abilities
Our meeting point is outside our principal sponsor, Bujo Burger opposite the green in the heart of Sandymount village. There are organised spins on Wednesdays, Thursdays (Spring to Autumn), Saturdays and Sundays, each led by friendly, experienced club members who will make you feel welcome. Green spins are for beginners at a leisurely pace, blue is an intermediate pace and red tend to be longer and harder spins. Our Thursday spins are socials that usually end with a burger and a Drink. We aim to alternate the terrain between flat and hills and adjust to the weather conditions with safety our number one priority.
Sportives and virtual ventures
We enter sportives, arrange local events and aim to provide members with the opportunity to travel abroad with the club on an annual trip. For those who are into virtual riding, we have a thriving Zwift group with organised spins at 18:30 on Thursdays during the winter months with an emphasis on fun and fitness.
Membership of Sandymount Dodder Wheelers is €25 and all members must join Cycling Ireland and then apply to join our club through the cycling Ireland website as per their regulations. Before joining your first spin you must attend a club organised safety initiation which are held regularly.
