Inter Club League

 

Apollo CT is part of a local cycle club league that comprises the following clubs, Orchard CC, Island Wheelers and Clann Eireann CC. The inter club league runs between April and August each year and covers 5 and 10 mile time trials and circuit races. The races split between the clubs at the start of the season and then each one is organised by one of the 4 clubs. As the league progresses, participants can gather points by being placed. These points lead to prizes at the end of the season in the annual ICL prize giving night.

Road Races:
These are handicapped events, with typically 3 groups starting off and a mass finish. This is a great way to improve your fitness and skills for riding in a bunch. The races are designed so that all groups come together near the end of the race, however if a particular group works well they maybe able to separate themselves from the rest of the riders.

Time Trials:
These are individual races against the clock. Riders compete to do the fastest time, with handicaps being worked out after 3 events, meaning the rider with the most improvement wins, not the fastest on the night.

3 Day:
The Inter club three day event is strongly contested every year, starting with a hill climb, followed by a handicapped road race on day 2, then finally a mass start road race on day three. The points get added together and awards are given out a the end of the season for individual categories within the event.
