Ring Of Kerry Sportive

Post date: Jul 07, 2017 4:47:0 PM

Last weekend a large group of Lakeside Wheelers members travelled to the “Kingdom” to participate in the famous Ring of Kerry charity cycle.

This is now one of Ireland’s most popular sportives with over 10,000 riders signing on to ride the 180kms from Killarney to Killarney via the spectacularly scenic and world renowned tourist route.

The majority of the Wheelers who took part are from the Saturday morning or D Group which makes their achievement all the more noteworthy as these members would not be used to the distance so lots of training miles were required. On top of that they did not exactly have perfect weather for the trip as it was mostly damp throughout the day. However, as the photos show, they all enjoyed themselves so well done to you all and to Gerry Wallace for organising the weekend.
