Tour de France Ride – only three weeks to go!

Saturday July 5th is only three weeks away!

Celebrating the 1998 Tour de France stage from Enniscorthy to Cork, we’re riding it again!  Fully supported , with a break for lunch in Sean Kelly’s home town of Carrick-on-Suir on the way, this is a unique ride in the wheel tracks of le tour. Raising funds for the HOPE cancer care charity, the event is supported by Enniscorthy Town Council and we hope to be joined by members of the Blazing Saddles crew.

A map of the route is on the 10th TDF Ride page.

If you intend taking part, and have not entered yet, there’s still time. But please get an entry form to as soon as possible. Entry form can be downloaded from 10th TDF Ride page.

If you have booked accomodation and evening meal etc at the Silver Springs through the club, the hotel need final payment by 19th June so contact Pat if you have not paid in full.


Coming back to Enniscorthy on Saturday evening – A bus has been provisionally booked for anyone requiring transport home but your place must be booked in advance if you (and your bike!) need a lift home. Nominal fee of €10 if we have enough numbers.

Staying in Cork overnight – for the bike masochists out there several participants have expressed an interest in cycling back some, or all of the way, the following day. If you are interested let us know and we’ll try and get a group together.
