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 – 75km
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.
Sunday Time Change
As the clocks are moving back next week and with the mornings getting dark the meet up times have changed to suit.
- Group A will maintain the 8:30am meet up time for the next couple of Sundays
- Group B will now leave at 9:00am for the winter season
Groups leave from the Ballalley carpark as always.
Night spins on a Tuesday and Friday are ongoing and leave from outside Buckleys at 6:30pm.
Cycle the Ring of Kerry
For those who didn’t manage to make it down for the main event in early July some of the club members are organising a weekend away to Killarney to take in the Ring of Kerry.
This will take place on the weekend of September 13th 2014. If numbers are good a bus will be arranged to take participants down on the Friday night. Cycle the Ring on Saturday and return home on Sunday.
For the hardcore, Niall is organising to cycle down on the Friday.
