The Cycling Ulster Off-road Commission is hosting off-road training days at Castlewellan Forest Park on Sunday 20 February 2022 and Sunday 27 March 2022.  These sessions are for Ulster youth riders, boys and girls, in the Under 14s and Under 16s age categories.  (Year of birth 2006 – 2009).

We are planning a mixture of trail riding skills, hill climbs, technical sections and downhill sections. The sessions are aimed at those riders who are considering racing in cross-country or enduro races in 2022.

Schedule: Meet in the main car park at 9:30 am

Head out onto the trails at 10:00

Back for 1:00

Riders will need to have a current Cycling Ireland licence and will need to pre-register. 

Link to register is given here. Closing date for the first session is Friday 18 February.

Groups will have a maximum of 10 riders.  Riders are asked to bring their own water and snacks.  Parents can join us on bicycle.

NOTE: Castlewellan Forest Park has a £5 entry fee for cars.   The training day is being provided free of charge.
