What a day, 19 of us from Cuchulainn entered the Tour of Meath 2016 which was a tougher and more challenging route than last year. Three members did the 160 route and 13 of us did the 100km and 3 did the 50km so, well done to all and also a big well done to Pat’s Saturday Morning Coffee Cycle who turned out in great numbers. Pat Kilboy, you should be proud.
The last 40km was very good even though we had light rain. We kept together the whole way home. In fact a few other cyclists joined us in our peloton for some of the trip home. As we came to the end, we were a sight to behold. Everyone came through the finish together as one team… Team Cuchulainn. Well done everyone. "We started out together and we ended together" was our saying for the day. We all went into the marque and again we had more food which was brilliant.
A well organised event with Marshalls at crucial points and even a Garda motorcyclist ensured everything ran smoothly.
