Cycling Ireland is looking to lift the sense of being away from sporting exercise by launching a series of races and training sessions on the popular online training platform Zwift.
With outdoor cycling events and activities curtailed on government advice, the National Governing Body have moved online to provide fun ways of keeping active and engaging in some friendly racing rivalry.
The Cycling Ireland Zwift League is a 12-race series with events being held each Saturday morning starting on March 28th.
Male and female riders will have four categories to choose from meaning all levels are catered for.
In addition to racing opportunities, many of Ireland’s top cyclists and coaches are set to lead group rides and workouts each Tuesday and Thursday at 7 pm.
Several workouts have already taken place with participants benefiting from expert advice and enjoying a unique training experience.
Meetups are capped at 50 people, and registration is needed to take part.
Cycling Ireland will be updating on the different events and opportunities on their social media channels over the weeks ahead.
