Next Meetup

Easy Riders Spin, From UCD
"Easy Riders" Leisure Cycle is a SouthSide based social meetup bringing together a group of people, young or not so young, interested in leisure and exercise cycling, and a coffee meetup. Currently this is a weekly cycle outing. We are South Dublin based (but all are welcome). The outings are on Sundays 10.00 am - 1 p.m., approximately, including the break out social meetup for coffee, during the spin. Some outings take in the coast, others inland with some manageable hills, but always with a break the other side ! The group is about cycling, exercise, but also fun. The cycle will be just about 20-30 KM, in a group. For the spin, you would need a decent bike, an ok level of fitness and a very keen sense of road safety. IMPORTANT; You take part at your own risk (you recognise this if you join), but we will cycle mainly where cycle lanes are present (your safety first), or off busy road stretches as much as we can. Please remember to cycle in single order on busy roads and not side by side. If you are interested in taking part on these meetups, there are no costs apart from your own coffee or food purchase. We currently leave from the new Spar and Insomnia shops, and they are in a building, near University College Dublin (UCD), which is a new UCD student accommodation building. This is located the other side of the Stillorgan Road, away from the UCD main campus. A MAP link is http://bit.ly/1hljNRi - opposite University College Dublin (UCD), but on the Stillorgan road (N11). We do (approx) 90 Mins of cycling, with 1 / 2 very small breaks. The 45 min stop off for coffee/food, is also part of the outing, and occurs half-way. Unlike the very old motor bike movie "Easy Rider" from which the name comes from, there's no drugs required, no EPO or anything else to influence your cycling power. Coffee and food are the only stimulants we recommend on the outing. Here's a clip from that old Biker movie Easy rider (bit out of date!) https://youtu.be/uYGR2BXhGus You can just drop along without signing up here on the meetup website, to check the cycle out. However, please DO consider registering longer term for specific meetups, so that you will receive timely alerts, changes or weather driven reschedule (prior to travelling to the cycle), if the weather (wind / rain) forces a last minute cancellation, we will email before 9 a.m. on the Sunday, if any change . Meanwhile, to plan! Here's the 7 day Local Weather Forecast (http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/blackrock%2C_dublin) Also, if you download the MEETUP APP on a smartphone, you would be able to get alerts straight to your phone. NOTE, we also have an active Easy Riders WHATSAPP group for most of our communications to regulars about things beyond the dates/times, so enquire if you would like to join. Any information / updates (such as reschedules/cancellations or extra events) for people who have RSVP'd to attend on speocific cycles, will be posted here on the Meetup. We look forward to welcoming you, and please feel free to share about this meetup with your friends - the link is Here (http://www.meetup.com/Southside-Leisure-Cycle/) There may be a few interesting cycling tips and discussions at our discussions page also.

What we're about

"Easy Riders" a SouthSide Dublin based Easy Cycling & Social meetup, got moving late 2013

We bring together those interested in cycling, and improving their health and fitness. An emphasis is on fun while we're cycling and a bit of chat over coffee or light breakfast about 11.20 am, when we stop halfway.

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., approx.

We've about 6 - 8 regular routes, and we decide on the morning, based on weather conditions, which one we'll take.

We have called the members "Easy Riders", which is a fun term to denote this is NOT a serious "power" oriented 'lycra-clad' cycling group.

The cycle will be a round trip of 20 - 35 KM (+your journey to and fro), in a group. You need a decent bike, a fair level of fitness and a very keen sense of road safety. Easy Riders is a non commercial group, it doesn't costs anything and the group does not take responsibility for any injury during the cycle. You partake at your own risk, but on our route, we try cycle mainly where cycle lanes are present or off busy road stretches.

If you are interested in taking part on the cycles, we leave 10.10 a.m. from the Montrose Hotel, the new Student accomodation building opposite UCD, on the Stillorgan road, for two hours of cycling, having also had the coffee along the way somewhere. If you might be late, but are still attending, call or text 087 - 833 7107 so we can advise you of our cycle's direction or wait a couple of minutes for you.

We periodically do something like an away day, greenway or longer trip and meetup elsewhere. That is posted on either the meetup page or our members WhattsApp Group.

Here's the 7 day Dublin forecast. (http://www.xcweather.co.uk/forecast/dublin) 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. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0Uan_nLLjs&feature=youtu.be&noredirect=1)

We look forward to meeting you, and please feel free to share about this meetup.

All the best.
