2014 Kilkenny Hill Climb Time Trial

 


To complete the TT league we will be having a standalone Hill Climb KOM Time Trial on Thursday 5th of June. We've discussed between all clubs and tried to pick a route that would suit everyone (with the ridge in Old Leighlin a possibility for next year!) we've decided on this 5.5km route, a Category 3 climb up Ballysallagh Hill with 240meters of elevation in total it will be a real test for everyone. Here are the route maps:

Howard Triggs of VGraph has very kindly sponsored 2 Kilkenny themed polka dot jerseys for the fastest man an woman up the climb. Well done Howard, the jerseys look great! There will also be additional prizes for the next two riders (that have not already won prizes in the TT league).

First rider off at 7 as usual on Thursday 5th of June. We hope all club members will give it a shot on the night, if not we hope to see big crowds up the hill cheering on, taking photos and/or wearing mankinis!! :)

Wandesforde School Charity Cycle 2014

The 2014 Wandesforde National School Sponsored Cycle has been scheduled for Saturday June 7th. There will be a 5km fun cycle for the kids, a 40km cycle for any newcomers to cycling and the more challenging 100km and 125km routes for any experienced cyclists. It will also have a 5km run in case there are any non-cyclists.

Registration on the day begins at 9am in Wandesforde National School, Castlecomer, Co. Kilkenny.

• The 100km and 125km cyclists will set out together at 10am.
• The 5km and 40km cyclists will begin together at 11am.
• The 5km run will also be along the same route as the children's 5km fun cycle route, the famed "Wellie Race" route.

There will also be a kid’s fun skills course to encourage the kids to test their skills. This will involve some bike handling skills, obstacle courses and some roll over jumps. Also on the day there will be the kids favourite, the icicle bicycle filled with ice creams free of charge, a bouncy castle, face painting & sausage and chips for all the kids.
