Revolution Cycling Club Mallow wants you to take part!

A very proud Revolution Cycling Club member, Donal Healy, after conquering Ireland’s highest mountain on Sunday.

Have you found your old dusty bike in the shed during lockdown, or have you bought a fancy bike lately and wondering now what to do with it – look no further? Revolution Cycling Club are here for you to put that bike to good use. RCC started in Mallow back in 2013, and caters for several cycling disciplines such as road, mountain, racing, cyclo-cross and leisure cycling. Our motto is ‘nobody gets left behind’ … unless of course, it’s in a competition!
The club recently ran a very successful Couch to 50km for a small Covid-controlled group. Wasim Mahmood (Club Secretary), and Jerry O’Regan (General Cyclist Extraordinaire) led the eager new cyclists. In five weeks, the group graduated from cycling 10km, to the grand finale. On a beautiful sunny Sunday morning, August 9th everyone rolled back into Mallow after a fantastic 50km cycle. Due to high demand a second Couch to 50km will kick off this weekend, August 30th. Not surprisingly, the available 10 places were snapped up in 2 hours of setting the date live! These two events will hopefully bring a renewed camaraderie to the leisure group numbers.
Don’t fear, however, if you have missed the chance to join the Couch to 50km. Every Sunday, the RCC leisure group (20km/hr – 50km distance), and intermediate group cycle (>25km/hr – >100km distance), get out for a spin to blow the week’s cobwebs off.

Revolution don’t ONLY cycle….
Not only do Revolution CC take on hills on their bikes, they also do it on foot. The social aspect of Revolution CC is very important to the club – it’s about TEAM. So together, many of the club left their bicycles unusually parked up on a Sunday, and climbed Carrauntoohil. Some were completely out of their comfort zone for a change, but change is good! And, as per the club motto, nobody was left behind. The happy crew were rewarded with a dry day and beautiful views from the top! The banter and the mood were high, with fantastic memories made together as they conquered Ireland’s highest.

Coming soon – Bike Week will take place 19th– 27th September. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for events to come.
