This is a very flat event. Apart from a few gentle rolling roads there are no climbs. Leaving Whitehall Church at 7.00am. The route heads to Dunboyne, Kilcock, on to Fore (halfway point) by way of Newtown (nice view of Newtown before the descent to it), Longwood, Drumcree. From Fore the route heads back to Athboy, then Garristown via Dunderry, Bective, Kilmessan, Drumree, Dunshauglin and Trevet. From Garristown there is a nice gentle descent to the Broadmeadow river, then across the Swords/Ashbourne road on to St. Margarets, and the Finish back at Whitehall.
LONGWOOD : 68km
ATHBOY : 130km
INFO CONTROLS at 55km (on route), 110km (ruin of Fore Abbey), 163km (Drumree), 184km (Garristown). Details on the day. You will need a pen.
If like me you are a full value rider you may need a torch for the info controls at Drumree and Garristown
The route is run mainly on 2nd and 3rd class roads.
Lights, tools, spare tyres, rain gear etc and warm clothing. Don’t forget them !
Make sure your lights are good enough for a 200km event on dark unlit roads.
It is a fairly remote road from Kilcock to Longwood. Very little if any in the way of shops or Banklink machines (about 38km), so if you need to stock up on provisions Kilcock is your final chance.
It is the same from Longwood to Fore and on to Athboy. There is a coffee shop in Fore but the opening times are very erratic (they do lovely chocolate cake when it is open). There is a pub in Fore.
The distance calculations include the track (GOOD SURFACE) into Fore Abbey (info control) and back out.
