4 Peak Pat Colgan Challenge – 125 km

This route will take in all 3 peaks of the Slieve Blooms including The Cut (x2), The Wolftrap and Glendine. This route includes around 1,600 metres of climbing so is not for the faint hearted.

2 Peaks Pat Colgan Challenge – 95 km

This route will climb The Cut and The Wolftrap before returning to Tullamore across some scenic quite roads. This route includes 1,000 metres of climbing.

Base of the Blooms Challenge – 85km

This route skirts around the base of the Slieve Blooms and avoids all the major climbs before returning along the same roads as the 95km cycle. It still contains 400 metres of climbing across some rolling terrain.

Jim’s 50km Challenge

New for 2016 this is the perfect route for beginners. The route takes riders from Tullamore to Kinnity via rolling roads which follow the route around the base of the Slieve Blooms. After the tea stop in Kinnity riders return directly to Tullamore via Cadamstown and Coolagh Cross.
