Thanks to all those who took part; cycling and in support roles.

 

If you missed this year’s Inishowen 100 sportive, get training and watch out for the 2019 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!

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.

 

This sportive should only be undertaken if you have trained for such an event. With approximately 7,280ft of climbing including Mamore Gap, which has the steepest gradient over one kilometre in Ireland, this route is not for the faint-hearted.

The i60 route covers approximately 64 miles and encompasses the beautiful coastline of the Inishowen peninsula but misses out the more challenging climbs.

 

The route is still challenging with approximately 3,491ft of climbing and is an ideal starter if you want to build up to the full i100.

Think of it as the i100’s little brother.
