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.
