Killorglin Cycling Club will host their annual Christmas Hamper Rides on Sunday 11th December. Sign on will take place in the Killorglin Rowing Club from 9:00am. The rides will get underway at 10:00am. There are two courses to choose from – a 55km ride that is largely flat and an 80km run that includes the climb at Farmers Bridge.
The longer ride will be controlled by a lead car to the bottom of the Farmers Bridge climb. From there the ride is unregulated and the first three riders home get the first choice of the hampers. The first rider home from the 50km ride gets the next choice. There is then a raffle on the basis of sign-on numbers to distribute the remaining hampers.
The day is designed to be a fun start to the new training season and to be as sociable as possible. While some riders will be motivated by the competitive juices more will be driven by the desire to make a bit of room for the Christmas excess to come.
Tea, hot drinks and food will be available at the end of the ride in the Rowing Club. Showers and changing facilities are available in the Rowing Club.
The sign-on fee for the spin is €10 for Cycling Ireland members and €20 for non-members.

Light refreshments afterwards, all are welcome.
