The cycling season is virtually upon us and Cycling Connacht Leisure rep John Greene is encouraging all cyclists to get back out on their bike doing what they always did and that’s enjoying the great outdoors on two wheels.
Speaking about the series John said “We all need a reason to get out and train and what better goal to have than doing a cycle in each County in Connacht. Each provincial club in the series is working together to get their members cycling in five fantastic events across five Counties in twelve weeks.”
The individual events are well known in their own right, but this year they are all coming together to support each other and to give Leisure Cyclists across the country an opportunity to meet up, interact, have some fun, make new friends and explore routes and roads they may never have enjoyed on two wheels previously.
All five clubs are encouraging their members to take part, firstly in their own local Sportif but also to sample some or all of the others; with the spacing of dates, it allows for cyclists to enter all five events if they feel up to it!
Plenty miles of fun, fitness and friendship are to be enjoyed by all taking part in the events.
So time to get planning your Summer Sportif Calendar and take on the Cycling Connacht Leisure Series in 2022! Check out the details below and contact the relevant cycling club for events specific details. See you on the road!
