The club rides are the backbone of Shimna Wheelers, there is a ride to suit all levels and abilities. Our ethos is everyone gets looked after and no one gets left behind. Of course, coffee and cake in various cafes throughout the county/country is also essential!

Helmets are compulsory on all club rides. Cycling Ireland / CTC Insurance Cover is essential on all Club Rides. New members are entitled to TWO rides before Cycling Ireland / CTC and Club Membership is required. If any member is interested in adding or taking a ride or has any suggestions on the rides please contact our club chairman.
