Westport Medio Fondo

The start line for Westport Gran Fondo will be the Westport Plaza & Castlecourt Hotels and from there the cyclists will make their way through the beautiful town of Westport and onto the route.

 

All cyclists will follow the lead car through Westport town (Neutralised Zone) and the flags will go down once cyclists reach the Leenaun Road (N59). Cyclists will make their way out the N59 with the beautiful Croagh Patrick at their back and surrounded by some of the most breath taking scenery in the West of Ireland.

Just before the Village of Leenane you will turn in by the beautiful Ashleigh Falls and enjoy incredible views of Doolough Valley before you enter the Sheffrey Climb. This is a tough climb with the Polka Dot Jersey up for grabs.

 

Following the Sheffrey Climb we will have a lovely Food Stop at Drummin National School. The stop is for a maximum of 30 minutes. Toilets will also be available at this stop.

After the Sheffrey Climb it’s a steady spin into Westport Quay via the West Road where you will turn right into Rosbeg leading you to the finish line at Westport Quay breathing in some sea air before your hero’s welcome.
