Here are two options – both from the Westwood at 8.20am for a 8.30 departure. The Great Dublin Bike Ride is on tomorrow. G2/3 will be travelling in the opposite direction to that event, so we ought not get caught up in the mayhem.
Group 1 – 60Km. Bike lead John Lyons. Sections of the 70.3 IM Route.
Group 2/3 – 74Km – Bike lead Bernard Hanratty. Ashbourne, Oldtown, Ballyboughal, Malahide. Route HERE
Please remember good bike discipline:
** There is one cycle lead – and that person is responsible for the route.
** Tight two by two groups, with regular up-and-overs and with a single-file transition are the hallmarks of a disciplined cycle group. No “half wheeling”!
** Each group has a target average speed – this should be maintained. Surges in speed (lead from the front) leads to a dragging-out of the group and members get left behind.
** Traffic lights must be obeyed – pedestrian and traffic!
** Groups should not break-up on the flat. If they do, then they should re-group as soon as reasonably practicable.
