Wicklow 200, June 2012

July 8, 2012

On the 10th June I did the annual Wicklow 200 ride, starting and finishing in Greystones. Just like last year, I managed to arrive late, so spent most of the day vainly trying to catch up with the main group. Unlike last year, it didn’t pour rain all day. It wasn’t great weather – grey and a little cold, but at least it wasn’t wet. Although one symptom of the very wet year we had was a terrible cloud of midges everyone had to battle through on the way up Glencree. I never really got going at a decent pace, so I was almost ridiculously slow (it was after 6pm when I finished), but better slow I suppose than not doing it at all.

At the start…

Going over the Sally Gap there were some very odd cloud formations including this twister forming over Dublin.

The sky lifted briefly as I went past the Blessington Lakes.

After a late start, I seemed to spend most of my time riding alone, trying to catch up with bunches visible in the distance.
