July 13th 2018 is the 20th anniversary of the Tour de France Stage Start in Enniscorthy.
Slaney Cycling Club are planning to ride the route the pro riders took on Saturday July 14th from Enniscorthy to Cork. This ride will be in the form of an Audax ride and will be self supported – riders will be given a map/Garmin route file, a meeting time and away we go!
We plan to stay in Cork that evening and cycle back the following day. 10 twin rooms have been booked at the Silver Springs hotel in Cork and they will be dished our on a first come first served basis. We will hopefully have a van to transport kit etc….
As this is a club event, we want to make sure that everyone can take part and not just those wanting to go the full distance to Cork. With that in mind, we have a second route which will take people to Carrick on Suir (70km) and the plan will be to stay the night there – Bernie Whelan has secured accommodation in hotel there but the hotel needs firm numbers for next week. If this is your choice, please let Bernie know asap.
Both the Cork and Carrick groups will all leave Enniscorthy together. More info to follow so make sure you get in touch with Phil Skelton or Bernie Whelan to register your interest and finalise accommodation etc!
‘On y Va’ / Let’s go!!!
