Our annual Mark Mullen League begins on Monday 17th June. Racing will take place at 7:30 each Monday night for six weeks in total. Each race will be just over 6 laps of the Donore Circuit.
All races are run on a handicap basis and are an ideal opportunity for those who’ve never raced before but would like to give it a try. Anyone wishing to race must hold at least a Cycling Ireland Club competition license (club members who have non-competition licenses can upgrade by applying to Cycling Ireland).
Riders must ride in a minimum of 3 rounds to be eligible for overall prizes. Riders who ride all 6 rounds will have their best 5 results count.
Sign-on for each race will be outside Donore National School. The entry fee will be €5 per race, payable at sign-on.
As always, we ask all competitors and spectators to be mindful of the needs of local residents when parking on or near the circuit.
It is with great sadness that Drogheda Wheelers Cycling Club announce the untimely death of its member, Sean Lynch following a tragic accident. The club would like to take this opportunity to thank all the medical staff who cared for Sean following the accident and expresses its gratitude to Wexford Wheelers Cycling Club for its support during this difficult time. Drogheda Wheelers would like to extend its sincere sympathies to the Lynch Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Due to unforeseen circumstances here in Drogheda Wheelers, the Dunsany GP scheduled for this Saturday, May 11th, is postponed. It is the hope of the club that we will be able to reschedule and run the event at a later date but we feel we have made the correct decision in light of recent events.
