Group Training Days

 

The Irish Cycling Academy Group Training Days [break][/break]At the Irish cycling Academy we have developed two types of training days that are designed to be fun while giving a lot of information and skills to riders.The first type of training day is the NUDGE. It is designed for all levels of riders to improve their basic knowledge and skills on the bike. The second type of training day is the PUSH, which give riders who are aiming to be more competitive, whether in club leagues, open races or faster sportives more advanced skills and training plans.
