• Welcome to our annual Sportive 2017 in aid of CRY Cardiac Risk in the Young

We are busy preparing for this years events which all take place on Saturday 29th of April.

There will be 3 main routes beginning with a 70km beginners route. For those looking for a bit more of a challenge then there is the 110km route.

2017 also sees the return of the Endurance 125km featuring such dreaded climbs as “The Grove”, “Mass Rock”, “Rooska”, & “Farrihy” and a lot more testing roads in between. Those of you who have completed this route in the past will know the pain of the climbs is only surpassed by the exhilaration of the achievement. To those considering taking on this epic challenge our team will be on hand to support you all the way, paying homage to your achievement as you cross the finishing line. Here you will join us for a feast of home cooked food that only the good people of the village of Monagae can provide.

We will also be holding our family fun cycle a little later in the morning. The 25km route will wind along the country roads surrounding the picturesque village of Monagae at a very leisurely pace. So pull the auld bikes out of the shed blow the dust off and bring the whole family for along to some food some cycling and some fun.

We will update this page with routes and full details in the next few weeks.
