What is a sportive?
Once you’ve started cycling you might like to try a new challenge. A sportive is a non-competitive long distance cycling event. Some of the most famous cycling sportives, like the Wicklow 200, the Sean Kelly Tour Series & the Orwell Randonnee, are annual events that are held every summer and attract huge crowds of participants. They’re a great way to challenge yourself while enjoying some new scenery and meeting new people.
How do I get into racing?
Beginner Races: Now you’ve been bitten by the bug why not try a race? The Corkagh Park Women’s League runs throughout the summer , and is aimed at those interested in getting into racing for the first time. It’s great for improving fitness, cornering and bunch skills. These races are graded and handicapped to give both beginners & more experienced riders something to aim for.
