Dromara Hilly Leisure Cycle

04 Aug 2019

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

The 30th annual Dromara CC “Hilly” Leisure cycle will be on Sunday 4th August 2019. This event has become well established over the years and is now a well known mainstay of the leisure cycling calendar.  A tough but rewarding cycling test, the route lives up to its name, taking in some of the undulating terrain around the Dromara hills and Mourne mountains.  The Hilly has developed a reputation as a genuinely challenging but approachable sportive, and is an excellent “target” event for those riders who want to set themselves a lofty goal for their summer training.

The event offers a choice of two routes, 125km and 85km. The full distance event, originally known as the “Hilly 125” is now in its 29th year and has historically been the more popular of the two distances on offer. 

The event starts and finishes at Dromara Village Football Club. Sign on will be open from 8.00am, with the first riders away at 9.30am. The route for both distances is identical until the food stop in Leitrim.  More route info below.

Food stop
At the mid-point food stop in Leitrim, there will be a generous spread of sandwiches, yogurt, fruit, biscuits, tea/coffee, energy drinks and water to allow the riders to replenish lost energy and fluids.  Remember to mention any special food requirements you have on the entry form and we will do our best to provide. Probably the best sportive food stop in the world.

The food stop will be open from 10.30 am to 1:30 pm.

And at the end…?
At the finish, back at Dromara FC clubhouse, riders will be welcomed home with a well earned tasty Burger and complimentary tea & coffee. The public bar will be open and there will also be male and female showers to allow riders to change out of their cycling gear.

Entries are limited to 250 places and are first come, first served.

The entry fee for pre-registered participants will be £15 for Cycling Ireland (CI) members or CyclingUK members, with at least £5 from each entry going to charity.  For those without a CI licence or CyclingUK membership there is an additional fee of £5 (€5) for a one-day third party cover insurance.  The fee for entry on the day of the event will be £20 and for those aged under 18 the fee is £5.
