All groups will be accompanied by Limerick Cycling Club riders to support and encourage along the way at moderated paces. We will be stopping at Lough Gur for refreshments. This event will suit all adult levels for women and men from beginner and novice triathletes to seasoned bike racers and all in between. Watch this space for more details to follow soon!
Due to holidays affecting turn out lately, we have decided to cancel tonight’s event. However, we are back Tues 16th for 3 final weeks which we hope will support those racing in the end of season calendar which is quite local in flavour with Shannon, Charleville and Kilmallock all featuring open races.
