Official LMBC Trips/Events:
All participants must be a paid up LMBC member, or have CI cover (through another club or as an individual). If not you must buy a one day licence for LMBC. This ensures that all participants are covered by CI insurance.
These trips are organised by individual bikers. LMBC accepts no responsibility or liability for any incidents or accidents that may occur on these trips. Individuals participate at their own risk. Bikers who are paid up members of LMBC only, will be covered by the CI insurance policy.
University of Limerick Mountain Biking Club
This club is part of the University of Limerick Clubs and Societies. Clubs & Societies are a fundamental part of the University scene. The 66 Clubs & Societies at the University is the largest collection of voluntary run recreational and leisure activities under the one distinct brand on the University of Limerick campus, the UL Wolves.
The club was founded in September 1998. and from humble beginnings, with about 3-4 cyclists on each outing, they now have up to fifteen cyclists out every week. Don't have your own bike? No problem - they own and maintain 12 XC (general purpose) bikes, as well as an Enduro bike and a Downhill bike. All of these are available to members for club cycles. They also have club helmets and gloves for use on spins. Helmet use is mandatory on every club cycle. For cycles all you need to bring are some old clothes, a raincoat, water and a few Euro for food at the shop stop. Details of all their cycles and activities are posted on their Forum: HERE. Also check us their facebook HERE for the latest photos and videos of what they've been up to.
