C Group ride for Sunday 20th May
Its hard to say what the weather for Sunday will be. But it shouldn’t be too cold. Our trip today is the C Group Spring Classic. i.e Heading to Blessington and Valleymount. Climbing the Wicklow Gap from the easy side, descending into Laragh and up over the waterfall on the Military Road before descending down Sally Gap. Coffee in Laragh.
Just under the 100km mark and with just over 1100 meters of climbing should be fun.
Bring some energy bars or jelly babies and don’t forget the spare tubes and pump.
ID on your wrist at all times and look out for each other. Especially on the descents. Regroup regularly to make sure everyone is on and keep safe.
Spring Classic is a memorable trip for those who have never done it and those who have. All are capable. I think last two weeks proved we are ready for speed and distance heading into sportive season.
Stay safe and come home together!
