Innisfree Wheelers Spring Classic 2018

May 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

This Spring Sportive takes place on Sunday the 6th of May 2018 (Bank Holiday weekend), commencing from The Clayton Hotel, Clarion Road, Sligo. This was normally the day of the famous An Post Tour of Sligo, but sadly this is no longer taking place in Sligo. Innisfree Wheelers, however have stepped in to provide cyclists from the region with an attractive sportive which should suit all grades of leisure cyclists.

Choose from two routes of 60km and 120km taking in the breath-taking scenery of Counties Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon.  The first event, the 120km starts at 9am with the shorter 60km commencing at 10am.

The 120km event will suit the more experienced leisure cyclists. The course is designed to be suitable for good steady leisure riding, as there are no categorised climbs on any part of this scenic course. In the 120 km event, cyclists will witness spectacular views of Knocknarea Mountain, Lough Gill, Lough Allen, Lough Key, and The Ox Mountains and Arigna Mountains..

The start from the Clayton Hotel will be controlled by a lead car as far as the Carraroe roundabout in both events. From there the cyclists can take a view of the iconic Knocknarea Mountain on their right side as they peddle the undulating route out into the beautiful village of Ballygawley.

When the riders return to the Clayton Hotel they will have access to shower and changing facilities. They will also be treated to a hot meal with a choice of three dishes and a dessert thrown in. For those travelling the Clayton Hotel will provide very attractive overnight packages for cyclists and their friends or family.

So keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for further details of this exciting event;
