Please mind the Gap: Mountain biking comes to Glenties

Tir Chonaill Gap Cycling Club, is pleased to announce that they are holding a mountain bike event around the hills of Glenties at the end of the month.
Registration 12 noon at Glenties community centre, on Sunday 30th of October, with racing getting underway at 1pm.
The participants have to ride down the steps beside the Garda station in Glenties to start off this event in style. The pace will then be controlled up the Glen of Glenties road for three and a half miles. From this point they’re on their own as they turn off the road and start climbing the mountain, a climb sure to make the riders glad when they have reached the top. But there’s no time to relax as they start the first bit of the descent.
For the next two miles the riders will have to cross narrow wooden bridges, boardwalk, muddy holes if they can find them, even bigger muddy holes without looking for them, more boardwalk and a final descent guaranteed to put a grin on anyone’s face, if they can hang on.
Participants can either do one or two laps, finishing down the steps at the Garda station. Refreshments will be served afterwards. Entry is open to everyone, under 14 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
If you don’t want to participate come and watch, or maybe help out with marshalling . Registration is at Glenties Community Centre.
The excitement is Mount`n!
