Kerry Cycling Clubs Coaching Day

Hello All

Below are the details of the coaching day run by Cycling Ireland through Paddy Doran. Please circulate to all members and can each club secretary please get back to me with a number of members that are interested by Tuesday.

If we get a good response then other events will happen at different locations throughout the county as Cycling Ireland will see we are keen to develop the sport down here so can you please give this priority over the next few days – i know the timing is short but there were factors that caused this.

Another problem is the “network” we have so i am conscious that i may not have everyones email address so can you please pass this to whoever you think may be interested.

Finally and most importantly the details are;
