Ireland, a prelude to the Spring Classics.

Posted on: Tuesday, May 01, 2018

I have been home for a couple of weeks now enjoying the glorious Aussie Autumn weather while trying to maintain my post SRAC and Spring Classics fitness for the Marmotte - Pyrenees Cycling Camp. #pyrenees cycling Marmotte Pyrenees.

First Ireland, where I was invited to ride in the #SRAC. Stephen Roche was a no show, disappointing really despite it being his moniker event. I did however get to mix it with old mate Shaun Kelly.

There were predictions of horrendous weather and we expected as much and though cold, the Sun shone and unanimously voted the #SRAC fantastic.

Riding in Ireland, brilliant, well worth the weather risk.  The roads were magnificent, small with the occasional passerby.  Loved it.
