Maynooth Cycling Club – Velo Abu Sportif  

On Sunday September 18th Maynooth Cycling Club will host a 60km and 100km Sportif in aid of Maynooth Access Group.

Tandem cyclists are invited to register and be part of this fully inclusive event.

There are two routes for the Velo Abu: a 100km route (with 550m of elevation) and a 60km route (with 380m of elevation). Both routes take in the rolling countryside of south County Meath, and the 100km route returns to Maynooth through north County Kildare.

Both routes depart from Maynooth Gaa Club, heading north on the Moyglare Road out of Maynooth and take in some gently rolling countryside. There will be signage and marshals present throughout both routes.

If you would like to take part and require a Tandem Bike or a pilot please contact Pádraig Healy from Vision Sports Ireland at
