Cork outing is final event of the summer
Enjoy an action packed ‘festival style’ weekend and let your pedals do the talking by cycling around the roads and mountains of Cork when the An Post Cycle Series makes its way there for the ‘Rebel Tour’ next weekend.
All the action gets underway on Saturday (11th September) as participants have a choice of three road events to choose from. Keen cyclists and enthusiastic amateurs will have the option of taking on the 80k ‘Rebel Rider’ or the exhilarating 160k ‘Rebel Challenge’, while there is plenty on offer for families as the 10 kilometre ‘Rebel Pedal’ makes its way from Grand Parade.
The Ballyhoura forest will be alive on Sunday (12th September) as a new mountain biking event has been added to this year’s series. The ‘Rebel Rush’ presents riders with a choice of three trails, The Greenwood Loop (6km – Easy), The Mountrussel Loop (17km – Moderate) and The Garrane Loop (35km – difficult).
The ever popular An Post Cycle Series, which runs every summer, aims to encourage people of all shapes, sizes and abilities to get their bike out of the garage and jump into the saddle. The four events which have taken place already, in Sligo, Clare, Meath and Cork have attracted record numbers of over 9,000 cyclists.
Get On Your Bike – The An Post Cycle Series has something for everybody!
