"Easy Riders" a SouthSide Dublin based Easy Cycling & Social meetup, got moving late 2013.
It is intended to bring together those not just interested in cycling, but who want to be part of a group, who will improve their health and wellness, while having fun cycling.
This is South Dublin based (but all are welcome, young or old, existing & new members, any half decent bicycles too). Cycle outings are Sundays 10.00 am - 1.00 p.m., including a break out social meetup for coffee during, that happens locally to where the cycle direction takes us.
Our goal is to present an opportunity for people who would like to go on a group morning spin, then chill out and meet and get to know others for a bit of craic.
The group is about cycling, exercise, fun and personal wellness. We have called the members "Easy Riders", which is a fun term to denote this is not a serious "power" oriented cycle group.
The cycle will be just 15 - 25 KM, in a group (with breaks). You would need a decent bike, a fair level of fitness and a very keen sense of road safety. Easy Riders is a non commercial group and does not take responsibility for any injury during the cycle. (Thankfully this has never been a problem so far). You partake at your own risk, but we will cycle mainly where cycle lanes are present or off busy road stretches.
If you are interested in taking part on the cycles (no costs on cycle apart from your own coffee costs), we leave 10.10 a.m. from the Montrose Hotel, opposite UCD, on the Stillorgan road for an one and half hour cycle, having had the (optional) food or coffee meetup along the way somewhere. If you might be late, but are still attending, call 0 87 - 833 7107 so we can advise you of our cycle's direction or wait a couple of minutes for you.
We will do a variety of cycle routes, dependent on the weather. Once a month we do something like an away day and meetup elsewhere. That is posted on that days meetup page.
Here's the 7 day Dublin forecast. Suggestions are also welcome. "Easy Riders" Southside Cycling MeetUp. We also try to take in some nice environments or scenery and have a "cruise factor", like the Easy Rider Movie http://youtu.be/mAxYA381dB8
Here's a group on our chilled out pace, but we do vary it a bit. No one gets left however, so don't worry on that score. See The Easy Riders in action.
We look forward to meeting you, and please feel free to share about this meetup.
All the best.
