A small bit about us

Gowlin Cycling is a cycling club based in south Carlow at the foot of the Blackstairs. Founded in 2011, we are a growing club of about 20 members presently, all from Borris and the surrounding south Carlow area.

We cater for cyclists of any age, shape or size! If you have a functioning bike and a pair of functioning legs to go with it you are welcome to come along on any of our weekly spins. Typically we try to get out a few evenings during the week for short cycles (20km-30km), and then have a longer cycle on a Sunday morning, anywhere from 50km - 80km.

Our cycles take us all over the south east, mainly through the 3 counties of Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford and sometimes all on the same day! A beautiful part of the country to cycle around and we make full use of it. We categorise ourselves as a casual or leisure cycling club, as of yet we have not taken part in any races, so the only competition we have is between ourselves.

Our club regularly attends and supports many of the great charity cycles that are held by other clubs around the country every year. And for the past few years we have organised our own event, an annual 40-100km cycle in aid of Multiple Sclerosis, which is getting bigger and bigger each year. The aim of the club is to promote cycling as a great fitness hobby and to encourage as many people as we can to take it up.
