Skoda Tour de Conamara

30 May 2017

21 cyclists from Ballymena Road Club , Bann Valley RC and Castlereagh CC all rode the Skoda Tour de Conamara Sportive last weekend.

The Sportive was 140 km long and  took in the stunning countryside including  Leenane,the Twelve Bens and Maam Cross.

The event was very well organised with a free Gilet for participants and good food stops , motorbike marshals and of course Skoda team cars.

There was a party atmosphere at the finish with music ,a BBQ and a podium for photographs.
The next day we did a touring loop which included Kylemore Abbey, Lough Inagh and Ballynahinch Castle. Patsy McGurk acted as  guide and had a great knowledge of all the roads, and of course made sure the touring group were fed and watered.

It was a great weekend with plenty of fun, music and banter and a bit of cycling too!
