Sandymount Dodder Wheelers is a friendly community club with approximately 150 members. We welcome and accommodate a wide range of standards with at least 4 groups leaving on Sunday mornings from Bujo, in Sandymount Green.
There is also a Wednesday morning social spin and a 9.30a.m Saturday spin. From April to August there is a social cycle every Thursday evening to Howth or Killiney which sometimes finishes with a social drink and a burger. All rides are limited to 12 participants.
We also enter sportives and arrange local events. We were to have our inaugural away trip to Majorca in 2020. Unfortunately, due to current travel restrictions, we have had to cancel that but we are working hard to reorganise it for 2022. We are holding our annual club event on 4 September 2022.
The club has a Strava club and there is a subgroup for those with a Turbo. We operate on What’sApp with one group in which everyone is welcome to participate but only the committee can post to. It keeps the ‘noise’ levels to a minimum.
