CONT 3: ROBERTSTOWN 143km
About 205k long. I have amended the GPS map to avoid the junction in Sallins as it is extremely dangerous – very difficult to see oncoming traffic from the right.
At about 83.5 k there is a track parts of which are Roubaix like in so far as it seems to be an access road to an adjacent wooded area. The subsidence has been back filled with large stone fill. You will fairly clatter over it. Keep you eyes open for it.
Choose your tyres and wheels carefully. The section beyond Fureys heading for the LONGWOOD ROAD and BOYNE RIVER AQUADUCTS is slightly inclined towards the canal and the adjacent tree roots are exposed. Treacherous territory on hp slick narrow tyres.(especially in the wet).
FACILITIES: NONE, THIS IS A TOTALLY SELF SUPPORTED EVENT !
PLEASE, PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A PROPERLY EQUIPPED BIKE, WITH THE NECESSARY SPARE TUBES, PUMP, LIGHTS, TOOLS etc
There is absolutely no cover on the day !
