About IRL VC
Ireland Virtual Cycling or as it was formerly named ‘Team IRL’ was founded in October 2018 by Jono Finan. This has since grown from strength to strength, what started out as a small group of friends with the idea of bringing all cyclist from the island of Ireland or if you’ve emerald blood in you together to create a craic filled community of cyclists has just just exploded with popularity with our members increasing daily.
We are growing exponentially, our community is now over 4300 on Facebook and our newly rebranded Team RWB (#ridingwithoutborders|#racingwithoutborders) members registered on Zwiftpower (the Zwift results service) the last count was 1320, the 8th largest team in the World.
