So here it is the first single speed national championships to ever hit the shores of Ireland. With great thanks to the lads of Galway we will be running the event in association with the Connacht Mountain Bike League on the 19th October in Kilcornan Woods, Clarenbridge near Galway.

By all reports the course is about 6km of fairly flat but seriously fast trails with about 90% of it being single track so looks time to get those small cogs out of hibernation and prey for the rain to stop. The amount of laps is yet to be decided but will probably be based on the amount of beer consumed by the riders the night before.

Keep checking the site for details and we will publish them as they become more clear. The current plan is to go for a sociable ride somewhere on Saturday and then some beers on Saturday night followed by a race on Sunday.
