The 2018 Four Masters Poison Glen Tour is set to take to the roads of Donegal this weekend onSunday 23rd September. The 106 km course will take a similar route as previous editions with a feed station in Dunlewy.
Cycling through Glenveagh National Park and the Poison Glen, this is a must do tour for all cyclists who appreciate the scenic beauty that Donegal has to offer or those who just enjoy a challenging cycle.
This year the event will be based from Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny and travel through Kilmacrennan via Trentagh. We will then turn left in Termon through the magnificent Glenveagh National Park before turning right to tackle the first climb of the day, Muckish Gap. Once over Muckish it’s down into Falcarragh and on to Gortahork and then Dunlewy for a refreshment stop.
After a 10 min stop in Dunlewy, we set of to tackle the toughest climb of the day, The Poison Glen. After you summit the Poison Glen you have a fast descent down into Glenveagh once again and then back towards Letterkenny via Gartan.
This is a fun day for everyone and not a race. Sign on will open from 8.45am and cycle will start at 10am.Entry is €15 for Cycling Ireland members and €20 for non C.I. cyclists.
