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 bikers. With over 100 members we are a thriving cycling club. 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 prestigeous events in Europe including the Marmotte and Mallorca 312. We also have members that are involved in the Audax and endurance side of cycling who have completed the Celtic Knot 1000km endurance event.
Another important aspect to our club is raising money for charity through the running of two separate cycle sportives. The Reservoir Dog Sportive and the Cycle4DSI – Lap de Gaps have raised tens of thousands for Down Syndrome Ireland and local charities in Blessington and have gained reputations as ‘must do’ events among the wider cycling community.
Club rides for three separate groups are organised on a weekly basis throughout the year. Midweek club rides run thoughout the summer. Being located in Blessington affords us the oportunity to cycle in spectacular scenery in a variety of terrain. Routes for rides change every week and are 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.
