Cycling Ireland have launched a new bespoke membership and events platform designed specifically for the cycling community.

The product of 6-months development, the Cycling Ireland Membership & Events platform will deliver a marked improvement in the experience for members, club officials and event organisers and features the latest functionality on a fully mobile friendly platform. Whether you are a club official, event organiser or member, the platform will allow you to manage the cycling activities that matter to you free of hassle or stress.

The Cycling Ireland Membership & Events platform is powered by industry leaders, Eventmaster. A range of additional functionally will be added over time while we are committed to delivering ongoing innovations and improvements as the events industry evolves.

Cycling Ireland CEO, Matt McKerrow commented,

“I distinctly remember a Facebook comment that appeared when Cycling Ireland announced my appointment last year – “can you please fix the horrendous online membership system.” So, I am delighted to be able to say we’ve listened, and to be launching a system that integrates membership, club and event functions, and improves the functionality and experience for all in the cycling community.  Eventmaster have extensive experience and they have worked with us tirelessly to understand and deliver our requirements in an intuitive and effective platform.”

John Cleary, Managing Director at Eventmaster added,

“Eventmaster are delighted to work alongside Cycling Ireland on this project. Bringing this project to the cycling community has been challenging but very exciting for our team.

We look forward to assisting Cycling Ireland over the coming years as we develop the system even further.”
