2017 Sport Ireland Cycle Series
This summer set yourself a challenge, why not target the Sport Ireland Cycle Series. This is a fairly unique event in that you can do each of the events individually, or you can sign up for all five. It's completely up to you. The beauty of the series is that no matter what your fitness or ability is at the beginning of the series, you can enter an event that is achievable, and then progressively increase the distance over the summer.
