Tour of the Heartlands

Sunday last saw a group of ten Lakeside Wheelers riders take the short trip to Athlone to take part in Shannonside CC's annual Tour of the Heartlands.
There were two routes on offer, 40 miles and 90 miles, both starting from Athlone I.T which was headquarters for the day. Weather conditions once again proved challenging with some strong headwinds and crosswinds to test our mettle on what was a reasonably tough route. However, the rain stayed away and everyone made it home with no major incidents to report on what was a well organised and enjoyable spin, with motorcycle outriders covering every junction all the way around and well stocked refreshment stops.
