September events and calendar changes
The summer may be coming to an end, but there’s still plenty of cycling on the menu for IVCA members in September. There are also some important changes to the calendar which are outlined below.
Saturday 1st September is the date for our Track Championships in Sundrive Park. Track accreditation is mandatory to participate. See e-mail which was sent to members on 23rd August for further details. In the event of bad weather on the Saturday, the track meet with continue on Sunday, 2nd September.
On Sunday 2nd September, the re-scheduled final road race of the season takes place in Monasterevin, with sign-on at Monasterevin GAA Club.
Sunday 9th September sees the inaugural Gay Farnan Memorial tour take place. This tour replaces the former West Wicklow 100 Km, which used to start from Tallaght. The new tour starts at Dunsany GAA Club at 9.30 am and is open to IVCA members and friends. We hope to have a good turn-out for what was always an enjoyable spin for racing and touring members alike at (almost) the end of the season. Two routes are available, a 70 Km route and a 40 Km route. Further details will be posted in the coming week.
The Sanyo 2-Up TT takes place on Sunday, 16th September, starting at 9.00 am in Warrenstown. The AGM of the IVCA is on the same day, at 2.30 pm. Documentation for the AGM has been issued to members by e-mail.
Finally, the IVCA Hill Climb takes place on Sunday 23rd September. Due to the volume of traffic using the Long Hill in Kilmacanogue, we have changed the venue for the event this year. The new climb will be Cromwellstown Hill, outside Rathcoole. Sign-on and refreshments afterwards will be at the nearby Beech Park Golf Club. You can find the location by clicking here.
