Yes, it´s true, this is outside Galway, in fact the start location is at Results Gym Carrick Road Boyle County Roscommon, but it is quite a date for all the cyclists, as there are 4 options depending on your level:
200km,140km, 60km and 10km Family Spin
It will take place next Saturday, from 6:30.
These are part of the rules, it’s quite important to know, this is NOT a race:
Audax rules state that cyclists must be self suffieient e.g. food, fluid, bike repair, change of clothing etc. Cyclists must also be able to average a min speed of 15km/h and not exceed an average of 30km/h. This event is not a race.
Do not tell us later you could only go drinking for St. Patricks, we are giving you plenty other options!
