Fleche 2017

2017 Derry Finish

2017 was Ireland’s eight year taking part in The Easter Fleche and our first finish in Ulster. This year saw 2 Irish teams take part, joining fellow cyclist the world over by riding a minimum of 360k over a 24hr period. Both teams started in Dublin and finished in Derry. A third team consisting of Bernard Flynn, Camel Claffey, Andrew Fay and Dermot Hogan rode an unofficial Fleche from Mullingar westaward and back to Mullingar.

Team A,4 Men and a Lady, consisted of Niall Diamond, Andreas Voigt, Helen Kerrane ( St Tiernans) and Aidan Creaner.

Team B, Last Ditch Attempt, consisted of Conor Daly, Danny Moriarty (Orwell Wheelers) and Seamus O’Dowd

Congratulations to all the participants and a special mention to Niall and Andreas who have completed every Fleche since its inception in 2010. Aidan is also notable for completing his seventh Fleche. A special word of appreciation to Eoghan Barry, now U.S based, who had the foresight and energy to get the Fleche up and running as part of the cycling calendar.


Inaugural Fleche pulls into Aughrim, Co Wicklow for a welcome cup of coffee. Mark Tyrrell, Eoghan Barry and Niall Diamond. ( Andreas absent).


Anywhere, anytime, any Fleche

Clothing order

Hi all,

After receiving a few queries, we’re putting together another order for clothing. To ensure the delivery of the clothes in time for LEL, the order has to be placed with Watt Custom before the end of the month. Therefore, I’ll be closing orders on Friday 21st April.

To make life a bit easier for everyone (except probably Gary at Watt Custom), instead of having everything shipped to me and then redistributed to each of you, Gary will instead send your items directly to you. This will cost approximately an additional €8 for a standard order – it will be more if you decide to buy two of everything.

The procedure for placing orders is as follows:

1) Browse the price list and size guide and decide what you wish to order. Note that Niall has adjusted this list so that VAT is now included in the prices quoted.

2) Email your order to audaxirelandclothingorders@gmail.com. Be sure to include size and gender of the garments you wish to order and the address where you would like them sent to.

3) As the price list shows, the prices vary according to the total quantities we order, so when I have the full list of desired items, I’ll be able to figure out the final prices and let each of you know your individual total.

4) When I email you your total cost (including shipping), you can pay the owed amount to the club’s PayPal account (paypal@audaxireland.org).

5). Once everyone has paid, I’ll place the order with Watt and then we all sit back and wait for our shiny new jerseys etc. to arrive at our door.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Happy shopping!

All the best,
