Lap of Laois 2015

Some great footage here from Ashley Godden taking part in the Lap of Laois 2015. There was a good number of MCC riders in attendance on the day - with superb weather, blue skies and sunshine all day long! The pace was swift for this time of year, with a 31kmph average for the 125km route.
