    Not sure if Storm Brian on Saturday will permit any touring…rider discretion required…

    Saturday 21st October , The Saturday Tour!
    The Saturday group now offers two groups, with a second group who will aim to ride at a slightly lower speed than the training group and will aim for 20kms per hour generally. This will off those not riding every week an alternative to get back out on a Saturday morning and build up to group 1 over time…

    We will taper speed to those participating so don’t worry about being thrashed…the route will be fun…we hope to grow numbers in the coming months into two sustainable groups.

    Ridden at a moderate pace

    Sunday 22nd October, The Sunday Easy Tour!
    Meet: Grove Bar, Willow Grove @ 10.00am. Lead by Patrick Bradshaw!
    Expect a 60k spin . Back by 2pm with an obligatory coffee stop.

    There are now 2 groups every Sunday of a both a faster and easier pace with the groups splitting depending on abilities and meeting up at the end generally.

    This week Group 1 will be heading again upwards before the frosty weather and with the Group 2 warriors heading along a slightly flatter route…all of course weather permitting…

    The second easier group will ride on a flatter and shorter route…last week 15 turned out so come along no matter your fitness level…we will bring you up over time.

    The Dying Cow….not many riders will get to admire it….

    The Dying Cow, one of the most pleasant 200 routes in these parts has been revived by our own David Murphy and will be run under the auspices of Sorrento and Audax Ireland.

    This event has always attracted a good field and should do so with its prime date in September with good daylight hours.

    The route with beautiful scenery especially from Aughrim to the Carlow border and returning on the loop to Woodenbridge  on the way home will please most riders and distract your attention for the return leg to Bray Head….and back to the BW clubhouse.

    Entries are now open and entrants are very welcome for the Dying Cow 200 on Saturday 16th September starting 08:00 Bray Wheelers clubhouse. 

    Please see webpage for further details:

     www.audaxireland.org/events-calendar/gazetteer/200km-events/dying-cow-200/

     Closing date for entries is 8th September. No applications or payments accepted on event day please – see event page.

    Please note any unattached riders must purchase a Cycling Ireland (CI) €5 one-day license, for those not holding a current CI license, this has increased from the €2 indicated on some older versions of the Event Entry Form.
