Cycling in Carlow

Cycling is one of the easiest ways to exercise. You can ride a bicycle almost anywhere, at any time of the year, and without spending a fortune.

Many people are put off doing certain sports because of the high level of skill that seems to be required or perhaps because they can’t commit to a team sport due to time pressures. Most of us know how to cycle and once you have learned you don’t forget. All you need is a bike, a half an hour here or there when it suits and a bit of confidence.

Get involved now. Cycling in Carlow has never been so healthy.
