    Are there no clubs in your area ?

    You need a good few people who LOVE paperwork. Taking minutes, organising meetings, newsletters, attending cycling committees, doing accounts etc etc etc.

    My club has about 150 people in - a while back we had a splinter group form who just wanted to race really and werent bothered about all the admin. They lasted a year before they split. Without the people doing all the work - you dont have a club. Its not to be taken lightly. Every year we struggle to fill the positions and its a big club.

    Sorry - dont think that helps you very much - but my advice is find an existing club and get involved with that. Or just email Cycling Ireland ? I'm sure they'd be happy to help ?

    have you thought of just maybe starting small with just a forum to arrange a few regular rides until more interest grows rather than go whole hog?
  • Howaya, where in Ireland are you? That Cycling Ireland website is a nightmare - not user friendly at all. What type of club are you thinking of? Racing, 'cross, MTB or just going for a spin?
    Visit Ireland - all of it! Cycle in Dublin and know fear!!
