West Wicklow Tour next Sunday
The West Wicklow Tour takes place next Sunday, 10th September. Following the significant drop in participant numbers in the last two years, this year’s edition will be confined to IVCA members (i.e. it is not an open event). The tour is the 9th event in the Dick O’Brien Leisure League.
Roll out is from the Cycle Superstore in Tallaght at 9 am. The tour is based on the familiar route through Saggart and Rathcoole, then on to Punchestown and Brannockstown. Instead of continuing on to Dunlavin as in the past, the route turns left at Brannockstown and heads to Ballymore Eustace where there is an opportunity to stop and draw breath.
The route then heads back towards Hollywood and on to the N81 back to Tallaght. The full route is available here. Total distance is c 75 Km.
Please note there is no organised re-fuelling stop on this tour, so bring some money if you want to stop along the way.
