There are Junior categories across all disciplines of cycling, with National Titles to be won for both male and female junior riders.
Junior Cycling Ireland members who compete are distinguished by the JR in their licences.
In the Road Races the maximum distance that a Junior Male Rider can race is 140km and Junior Women is 80km. This means that for National Championships events there is the necessity for a separate Junior Women's Race if the Junior Men's or Elite Women's Championship is longer than 80km.
Junior riders must ride restricted gears. The maximum gear ratio authorised is that which gives a distance covered per pedal revolution of 7.93 metres.
