The 2016 ‘Tour of Fermanagh’ annual charity cycle will take place on Saturday 4th June. Now in its fourth year, the event will once again help raise funds for an important local charity. The organisers are pleased to announce that proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Oisín McGrath Foundation.
The cycle is aimed at all levels of cyclist, from relative newcomers to the sport up to experienced endurance athletes. Three individually tailored cycle routes (60km/100km/150km) will cater for cyclists of all abilities and fitness levels whilst showcasing the beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings of Co. Fermanagh.
The 60km route is a scenic but relatively flat tour of the Fermanagh Lakelands and will provide an enjoyable challenge for novice cyclists. The 100km route is aimed at more experienced road cyclists and takes in some more rugged countryside with challenging ascents, fast descents and stunning panoramic views. Finally, the 150k “Sportive” course will satisfy experienced cyclists looking to test their endurance. Sportive riders will follow the route of the 100km tour before completing a demanding course which includes the notorious climb over Carnmore Viewpoint (“the Rock”).
The event starts and finishes in Lisnaskea and is hosted by Lisnaskea Emmetts GAC in association with Clones Cycling Club. All routes will be fully marshalled on the day, including motorcycle outriders from the local Mad Dog Motorcycle Club. Full mechanical support, food/refreshment stops and changing/shower facilities will also be available.
Sign in is at 8am and the event starts at 9.15am.
