As far as I know this race is still open so come on everybody lets hit the west of the county with a bang!!! Any bother I'd imagine if you contacted Tony O Mahony at the bike shop he'd sort you out

I'm confused. I'm a Dub so to me the sugarloaf is in wicklow. Is that thing we have to run up once we get to the vee? That's the one that looks a bit steep to me. The cycle bit is grand, I just hope it's not raining it's so exposed.

Anyway, should be fun and hopefully a good training day for me at least!

Hi Kieran
The Vee is steep (not half as steep as the Sugarloaf though!) have cycled it a few times it does level off in parts which is good, pretty exposed though so hopefully it won;t be too windy on the day Wink I'm going to rent a kayak from Tony the rece organiser but thanks for the offer
Will see you on the morning, Looking forward to it, good luck with rest of training

Hi Shiv.

I'm hoping to do the Waterford Adventure Race. Might well see you there. Cycled up to the Vee yesterday to have a look at the hill climb. Have you seen it? It's kind of steep... The spin to Lismore on the bike is lovely although a very rough surface for the first few miles. If you do happen to be stuck for a kayak, I have several, although the general purpose ones are disappearing fast and furious, I've only one left. I have a few race specific ones but you'd need to fairly competent to use one of them as stability and steering become a big issue if you're not used to them.

Should be a fun day out, though.

Kieran.

That's the first I heard of it. Pity it wasn't advertised more as I know a good few mates who would have been interested. Me too, had I known. Good luck with the event though. Hopefully it'll be on next year and I'll defo give it a go.
