Western Lakes Ladies Sportif is a fantastic day out for women cyclists of all abilities. It is a 64km leisure sportif which circuits the beautiful Lough Mask. The route starts & finishes in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo and takes in the villages of Partry, Srah, Tourmakeady, Finney and Clonbur before returning to Ballinrobe.
The scenery along the way is unparalled and gives participants a chance to appreciate the beauty of South Mayo/North Galway. There is one climb up Maam Trasna hill to challenge but it is short and sweet and before you know it you will be flying down the other side. There will be a food stop at approx the halfway point with lots of tasty treats for all participants.
The Sportif is a non competitive leisure event and it will be fully marshalled and supported. It has gained a reputation over the years as being one of the most welcoming sportifs in the country and is a great way to finish out your summer season of cycling.
