On Sunday 11 August 2013, a few Killinchy CC riders will be riding Dromara Cycling Club’s annual Mourne Sportive and Hilly Leisure Tours. There will be again four routes to chose from which should provide a challenge for all riders. The ‘big’ event on the day will be the infamous Mourne Sportive, described by some as the toughest one day tour in Ireland. This 169 km route will take riders into the heart of the Mourne Mountains climbing over 11,000 feet across many of its famous peaks including Coyle’s Hill, Spelga, Windy Gap and Dree Hill.
As well as the Sportive, there are also three shorter Hilly events, the Hilly 125, Hilly 85 and the Hilly 60. The Hilly ‘125’ is now in its 25th year and proves to be the most popular distance for the leisure riders. Click on picture to pre enter and get discount on entry fee. Lets hope the weather holds!!
