For those attempting it ; remember it must be from a standing start ;-)

Does the segment start after the lights? They can mess up a time rather easily if not

That would be tough as he segment starts when your already climbing. I think there used to be a longer segment but someone reported it as hazardous because of the school.

I've finished my extensive training for this (once up KIlmashogue this morning) so I'm feeling quietly confident :-P

I'm thinking of the old segment. The lights a bit further back are where I thought the climbing started.

Anyway, went up old long hill today and didn't climb off to use an inhaler like last time.

Cramped quite badly going up Windgates though, but that was after 130 km and with me ignoring my water for a bit too long.

I gave it a go today - word of advice save a bit In the tank. From the bend before the car park to the summit is a killer if you’re in the red. Also the wind changes direction

Yea would be perfect for it , unfortunately the two sets of traffic lights would make it difficult as some would get caught at them.

Place was jammed there today . 88 up loaded the howth TT section . 8:26 the fastest
