Leisure Cycle

Date: Saturday 18th September Time: 10am Location: Ramparts Car Park, Navan

Navan has a rich and vibrant history, and there's so much to see when you venture outside of the town. This leisure ride will be to the historic Slane Castle on the banks of the River Boyne, where we'll take a well-earned break before heading back to town.

The route will be around 1 and a half hours on mainly back-roads and with as few hills as possible! There will be some stretches where we're on main roads, so participants should be familiar with the rules of the road and relatively confident cyclists.

We will have marshals at the front and rear of the group.


Additional Information


This FREE event is a leisurely cycle to a point of local interest. The cycle will last 1.5 to 2 hours, including a break at our destination.
