    Saturday 14th October , The Saturday Tour!
    The Saturday group will from tomorrow 14th October offer 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.

    Comments Off on The Dying Cow 2017

     

    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.

    Comments Off on Mick Byrne 2017

     

    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 .
