100 in 8 Tour on 12th August
The IVCA’s 100 in 8 tour takes place next Sunday, 12th August.
Covering 100 miles (160 Km) in 8 hours is one of cycling’s standard touring challenges and has been a feature on the IVCA calendar for many years. An engraved Silver Medal is awarded each year to any member completing the 50 in 4, the Wicklow 200 and the 100 in 8.
This year’s event will start from the Grasshopper Inn in Clonee, rolling out at 9:00am sharp.
The route will be similar to previous years (see map from 2016 below), but more likely to be cycled anti-clockwise this year: i.e. heading out to Rathoath and Skryne before turning west to Delvin.
Even if you only want to ride part of the way, our touring members would be glad of the company and shelter from the wind as they take on this challenge.
Remember to bring some money for a food stop along the way.
