Innisfree Wheelers Three Counties Cycle

September 10, 2022

Innisfree Wheelers Three Counties Tour takes place on Saturday the 10th of September 2022, commencing from The Mercy College Gym, Convent Hill, Sligo at 10am.

This event is one of the oldest leisure cycling events in the North West.

The start from the Mercy College (just off Pearse Road, Sligo), will be controlled by a lead car as far as the Carraroe roundabout. From there the cyclists can take a view of the iconic Knocknarea Mountain on their right side as they peddle the undulating route out into the beautiful village of Ballygawley.

On the route, they continue straight through Ballygawley and then pass through the villages of Sooey, Gleann, Geevagh and Ballyfarnon before arriving in Keadue. Here the cyclists will stop for a deserved food break in Saint Ronan’s Hall in Keadue village. Apart from being once the tidiest village in Ireland, Keadue is also the birthplace of the famous harpist O’Carolan!

From Keadue they will head for Drumkeerin and then in the direction of the beautiful village of Dromahair. It’s a very scenic last 20 kilometres then by the shores of Lough Gill and a slight uphill at the Deer Park. However, when they hit the top of this slight climb it is downhill all the way back to Sligo Town, to finish at The Mercy College just off Pearse Road.  Here the riders will be treated to a tasty hot meal for all their efforts.
