    The man in form however still leading the league after a solid second place is Roy Bowden now by 11 points from Jamie Noone trailing on 42pts.

    On Thursday next we move back to the Filter Bed circuit with 22.5 mile CP over three laps.

    The 10th Annual Mick Byrne Randonee will take place on Sunday May 28th 2017, starting at Dalkey, Co Dublin (200km @ 8am, 160km @ 9am and 100km@10am)and as usual there will be three adventurous routes from 100km up to a testing 200km on some of the most beautiful roads in Co.Wicklow .This year the entry numbers are limited to 300 participants. All funds raised on the day will go to funding in a small way, the incredible work done by the Hospice Foundation.

    Last year you helped raise €4,667 on the day for the charity! THIS YEAR WE AIM TO BEAT €5000!

    During your day you will experience stunning views of not only numerous mountain vistas including views to Co.Wexford but with the final test of your day ascending from Laragh over the tough Sally Gap you will need to keep something in reserve. The consolation of going up will surely be the welcoming scenery of Dublin Bay on your descent from Glencree and return home to Dalkey along the coast.

    This event in memory of a man who was one of the prime movers in the foundation of Sorrento Cycling Club in 1968. One of his main ambitions was that people of all ages get to experience the joy, excitement and adventure of cycling! On the Mick Byrne Randonee you will experience all three in generous helpings….plus new friendships made along the way.

    The 100km and 160km routes are great advance preparation for the Wicklow 200 and the 200km has nearly 3000 meters of climbing, a true challenge for any cyclist.There will be a number of feed stations provided along the routes to keep your strength up during your tour of the Garden County. As last year to ensure we make this as enjoyable as possible for you, we must cap the entry at 300 riders over the three routes so early entries are vital.

    Last year we had 298 riders so make sure your enter early!

    A Cycling Ireland Licence(€5 payable online) is necessary for those who are not members of a club, it is ESSENTIAL for all riders to sign on before departure to comply with our insurance requirements .

  5. Racing kicks off with TT…

    Comments Off on Racing kicks off with TT…

    A battle of minds perhaps …and maybe the odd bragging right…the race of truth…

    On a very pleasant evening for a time trial with a light and mainly neutral wind the times were good and the TT experts came out to play…in round one of the league and essentially the handicapping warm up, a solid field of racers and wannabees took to the N11 in search of inspiration and some perspiration.

    The cream as usual will rise and the winner on the night was an accomplished racer, Paul Cullinan with a chasing pack of experience with John Dorris in second (fresh from his 4th place in Stamullen last weekend) and the reigning champion Dave Peelo in third spot.

    Next week we get back to our old stomping ground on the Corncrake circuit in Roundwood with a start time of 7.30pm.

    Sign on from 7.15pm so don’t be late as light is a consideration for the next few weeks…

    Many thanks to George and to his mentor Joanne O’Shea who is training her apprentice on the clock for the next couple of weeks.

    Hope to see many more of you next week and of course feel free to attend if you would like to help out as a marshal.
