Would You Like To Be A Cycling Ireland Women In Sport Advocate In 2024?

Are you passionate about getting more women and girls cycling? Cycling Ireland is looking for individuals to take up the mantle of being a Cycling Ireland Women in Sport Advocate and inspire other women and girls during 2024 to take up or stay involved in cycling.
