affiliate with Cycling Ireland
The Irish Veteran Cyclists Association is affiliating with Cycling Ireland as a new club for 2021. The IVCA previously operated independently of Cycling
Ireland however both organisations will now work together to achieve our shared objective of increasing participation in cycling.
The IVCA have a strong record of hosting high quality events which cater for women over 35 years and men over 40 years of age.
Traditionally, more than 75 road race, time trial, track and touring events have been run by the IVCA and the club aims to continue this strong tradition.
Further information regarding the IVCA Cycling Club League will be provided once the impact of Covid-19 restrictions is known.
Cycling Ireland Chief Executive, Matt McKerrow commented:
“We are delighted to welcome the affiliation of the IVCA to Cycling Ireland. It is a positive step and reflects greater opportunity and experiences for cyclists
and collaboration between all in the cycling community. Thank you to the Board of the IVCA for their engagement with us and their collegiality in bringing the affiliation to fruition.”
Mick Davis, chairman of the IVCA, commented:
“On behalf of the IVCA Board and members, we are looking forward to developing Veteran racing together with Cycling Ireland and UCI. With goodwill
and co-operation, the future of Veteran racing in Ireland will continue and develop.”
