And hot on the heels of the Pink Elephant comes the third running of the Marble City 200 in Kilkenny, on April 2nd. As ever, Kilkenny is not as flat as you think it is, but this is one of the easier 200s in the calendar and you are very well taken care of by the Marble City Cyclers. Full details on their website.
Next up on the Audax calendar, the Pink Elephant 200 starting from Midleton, Co. Cork on March 26th The opening stretch takes you along the coast road through Kinsale to Clonakilty – all easy rolling with plenty to look at between the sea views, the abundant wildlife and several old buildings. From Clonakilty the route becomes hillier, almost reaching Macroom before turning back east towards Cork. Full details here – Kevin would like to have entries by the 16th so get cracking.
