About Us 2024-01-17T09:29:46+00:00


Reservoir Cogs is a leisure cycling club based in Blessington Co. Wicklow. The Club was formed in 2012.  We are affiliated with Cycling Ireland and cater for all levels of ability and fitness from beginners to competition riders and some mountain and gravel bikers. We have approximately 60-70 members. The ‘Cogs’ have an ethos of keeping the social and fun side to cycling. Having said that there is always the opportunity to partake in some seriously challenging cycling. Club members have participated in all of the major sportives in Ireland and some prestigious events in Europe including the Marmotte, the Mallorca 312, the Fred-Whitten, Raid de Pyrenee etc. We also have members that are involved in the Audax and endurance side of cycling who have completed the Celtic Knot (1,000km) and the Mile Failte (1,200km) endurance events.


Another important aspect to our club is raising money for charity through the running of our club sportive; the Reservoir Dog (more details on our website). All money from this event goes to local charities in the Blessington area and to date we have raised over €100,000 euro. The Reservoir Dog is a very challenging event that straddles the Wicklow Mountains with great climbs and super descents, it is one not to miss! In 2019 the Reservoir Dog won the best Sportive in Ireland award from Cycling Ireland. Quite an honour! This event is normally run on the first Sunday in September.


Club rides for three separate groups are organised on a weekly basis throughout the year. Midweek club rides run though-out the summer. Being located in Blessington affords us the opportunity to cycle in spectacular scenery in a variety of terrain. Routes for rides change every week and are a great way to discover our county and a few other counties besides! We are a very welcoming, inclusive club so anyone that is interested can join us.  If you would like more information regarding anything about our club please see the Contact Us tab at the top of this page.
