Important: For the safety of all riders a lights check will be completed before your event card is provided to each rider. You will not be permitted to take part if your bike does not have a good set of lights. Carrying a backup set of lights is recommended as this event will take place on dark county roads.
The Gheimhridh 200 starts in Stamullen, Co. Dublin and takes in some of the most scenic parts of Westmeath and Meath, before looping around Lough Derravaragh, north of Mullingar between Castlepollard, Crookedwood and Multyfarnham. The route passes through villages & Towns on the way back to Stamullen that are well stocked with food stops and shops. The route has some climbing in parts but nothing too taxing. Given the time of year the weather could be the challenging part of this event so you should be prepared for changes in the weather by bringing spare clothes, tools, and bike spares.

Is it possible to e–mail entry details and pay via paypal or on the day? would very much like to do this
Hi Andrew, if you contact Marc, the event organiser, at the email address listed above, he should be able to answer your queries. It’s a great route, so I’d highly recommend it!
Do these events have their routes marked out on the road?
I don’t know the area at all. Is it marked out?
Hi Chris, Audax events almost never have the route marked, and most don’t have manned controls. This page describes what self-supported means in terms of Audax. http://www.audaxireland.org/audax/
Pat, thanks for getting back to me. That cool. I realised that Audux is a bit more self reliant. I am a complete novice and have only been cylcling for 6 months but I am finding distances of 50-75 miles, even with 3 and 4,000 ft of elevation, to be quite easy and manageable and I want to give Audux events a go.
I am from the North and I am having bother getting any of my cycling friends to join in. So I will leave it until the new year and make the effort to join in the first Audux event of 2016.
Is the 2016 calendar available yet?
Hi Chris, the calendar was just released this week. 39 events to choose from! See you at one in the new year
Hi Dave, thanks for reply, (sry only seeing it now) I e-mailed Marc a number of weeks ago but never got a response, shame I was hoping to do this
Anyone got any thoughts on the weather for Saturday, huge variance in severity of expected weather.
Is there a link to the route?
ridewithgps link is above, or if you are not used to that I’ve copied the route across to my garmin account
