An Post Tour Of Sligo

posted 9 May 2011, 13:58 by Kevin Monaghan
On Sunday last 8th May, twenty plus Wheelers took on the first of the five An Post Sportives, The An Post Tour of Sligo. There were some strong winds, gale force at times, that both helped and hindered our progress. Most notable on the climb from Dromore West to Lough Easkey were we faced a gale-force headwind the whole way up and down the other side.

However the Wheelers covered the course some  which included 2,000 metres of climbing with no major issues and in a very quick time. The Wheelers fame and success has spread far and wide with several people commenting on the number of Wheelers present at the event and the success of our race team in Kanturk the previous week.

Next up is the An Post Tour De Burren, Clare – Saturday 18th June.
