Saddle up with Analog Devices Cycling Club this Saturday 

Join members of the Analog Devices Cycling Club on their 2019 club cycle on  Saturday commencing at 10am at Mungret college and it open to the general public of all cycling abilities

Analog Devices Limerick is a global leader in semiconductor  technology and is at the forefront of technological innovation so  one might understandable ask why did  the company decide to set up their own cycling club?

 Analog Devices Cycling Club was set up in January 2018  firstly as part of the Limerick Smarter Travel Programme which focuses on  sustainable travel for employees and also employee health and fitness initiatives and secondly as part of the employee wellness programme which is an integral part of the  Enterprise Excellence programme.

The company firmly believes that employee wellness comes from a positive culture and wellness creates a working environment  which supports health and happiness so that employees  can flour­­­ish and reach their potential.

The club is registered  with Cycling Ireland and has in excess of 70 members who work together as a team to organize a number of cycling initiatives such as cycle safety courses, training events and the annual club cycle. In 2018 the inaugural cycle was a very successful event where all proceeds went to the Irish Cancer Society  , the event was supported by a number of the local cycle clubs as well as clubs from outside the county.

Analog Devices cycling club members are clearly recognizable at events by their custom made colorful branded cycling club gear designed by Creative Practice and manufactured by Velo Revolutions. The club members are regular top finishers at events and this was very evident at the recent SRAC  Atlantic Challenge event in Dingle.    

The 2019 club cycle is on  Saturday the 13th April  19 commencing at 10am at Mungret college and it open to the general public of all cycling abilities. This event has  Cycling Ireland approval , supported by RAW cycles and is a highly organized controlled event with safety as a number one priority. There are two routes 55km and 90km  and all proceeds from this year’s cycle will go towards Killoughteen National School Autistic Spectrum Unit.  Click on the following link for more details and to register
