Foyle Cycling Club’s Inishowen 100 sportive ( i100 and i60 routes ) are taking place on

 

Sunday 22nd August 2021.

 

Photographs from the event will be on our Inishowen 100 Facebook Page and our Foyle Cycling Club Facebook Page.

 

Its great to know that we finally can run one of the best sportive's in Ireland, voted Cycling Ireland Sportive of Year 2017, after a very difficult couple of seasons we decided to have a go at moving forward with this iconic event, as with so much controversial rules and regulations we came up with the idea of reducing numbers and no feed zones, so if rules happen to change again all our planning can more than likely still qualify.

We have limited numbers of riders and riders must strictly adhere to our rules, so we have the Inishowen 100 and the Inishowen 60 routes, riders must adhere to the route they have entered, PLEASE PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION PACK that will be attached to the email sent to you, this is for us to administer your safety which is the utmost importance and we have limited cover over the vast scale of the two events

If you missed this year’s Inishowen 100 sportive, get training and watch out for the 2022 event.

 

The Inishowen 100 sportive is the Club’s blue ribbon event and continues to increase in numbers, attracting cyclists wishing to tackle some of the toughest hills in Ireland.

 

The i100 route covers approximately 102 miles and encompasses the beautiful coastline of the Inishowen peninsula and the challenging climbs at Mamore Gap and Kinnego Bay.

 

Cyclists who feel they are not experienced or fit enough for the i100 can attempt the i60 which covers approximately 64 miles, missing out the more challenging climbs of the i100. We like to think of it as the i100’s little brother!
