    Looking forward to it Katriona. My favourite Sportive of the year!

    Great cycle to do before the Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford which takes place the following week.

    Wondering which one of these to do on Sunday 100k or 80k. Don't really like main roads and traffic. Which of these routes would offer quieter roads?

    Also what % of people do the 100k vs 80k
