Lap of the Mask Leisure Cycle in Aid of IHCPT


This year we are delighted to announce that proceeds from our event will be going towards the IHCPT (Irish Childrens Pilgrimage Trust). The Lap of the Mask is fast becoming one of the most popular leisure events west of the Shannon, and each year has attracted many newcomers. This is a fun event that is suitable for all levels of cycling ability, where participants complete a circuit of Lough Mask at their own pace, while enjoying the natural beauty of the area. So if you need something to motivate you to get fit, why not sign up and come along on the day. The route for the Lap of the Mask is a 65km circuit of the lake, which is well within the capabilities of anyone who is of reasonable fitness. Cyclists will start out at Ballinrobe, cycle to Partry where they will head for Tourmakeady along the north shore of the Lough. There is a food stop after Tourmakeady. The second half of the route will take cyclists to Finny and into Clonbur, before heading back into Ballinrobe.  

The routes will be fully marked and marshalled, with support vehicles patrolling the route during the event. Refreshments will be available at halfway and again at the finish. Sign-on from 10:00am at Western Lakes Cycling Centre, Kilmaine Road, Ballinrobe. The event starts at 11am sharp. In the meantime take the bike out of the garage and get it, and your legs, into action! On the day, make sure your bike is in good working order, get a helmet, puncture repair kit, a pump, and join us for a fun day around the beautiful Lough Mask!
