Deenside Wheelers Ladies Sportive 2017

Ladies supporting Our Ladies Children Hospital Crumlin.

It’s that time of year again when the Ladies of the Deenside Wheelers Cycling Club will take to the Roads and enjoy a day of craic, banter and good old fashioned fun for the fifth annual Deenside Wheelers Ladies Sportive.

This year Deenside Wheelers will now offer the choice of four great routes to cater for all levels of fitness. For the seasoned cyclist there is the choice of a 70km route. Any beginners, those very new to cycling and those who just want to try it out have the option of the 50km route.

This is a ladies only event which journeys through the picturesque scenery of Kilkenny and Laois with cycle routes of 50km and 70km. Our ladies sportive aims to inspire women to cycle!


Monies raised from this event will go to Our Ladies Children Hospital Crumlin.
