Folks,

I know many members participate in Sportives through out the year, for newer members it might be useful to post a link to them on the forum and provide a bit of background etc.

So as a started for 10, I am going to post details about the 3 Peaks Challenge, please feel free to add other Sportives that you plan to do, on to this post.

The SERC 3 Peaks Challenge 2018 will take place on Sunday the 8th of April, if you are planning to do Dun Laoghaire 70.3, this will be a nice little taster, it goes over Slieve Mann & Shay Elliot, so there are plenty of hills :)

Sign on opens at 8.00am at Arklow Rock’s GAA club, rolling out at 9.30am

With two challenging route options 100km and 70km.
Refreshments served afterwards.

Cost is €25.00 and it would be a good idea to pay in advance.

Another really good one to do that's not too far away is the Mount Leinster Challenge on May 19th.

The long 145km route climbs the three sides of Mount Leinster with the 105km route doing two sides. In between is fairly flat so lots of time to recover.
I did this for the first time last year and was very impressed. Its very well organised and the food stops are better than most sportives out there.

Numbers are limited so you have to enter in advance. No details out yet. I'll put something up here when I find out.
Its another good 70.3 prep day!

BLACKSTAIRS 15 april CO. CARLOW
www.blackstairscyclingchallenge.com/

5 routes to choose from. Route looks challenging ie some climbing! But they also have a kids cycle(12km) and there is a family ticket too. Lots of food and i think you may get a jersey or t shirt with your entry.
