King of the Mountain

The much sought after polka dot jersey for King of the Mountain is a special event each year held at Kilmacanogue. This year’s event is on Wednesday, 10th May 2023 at 6:30pm.

We meet at Kilmacanogue at 6:30pm in the car park by the school.  Note that you will need to transport your bicycles by car and cross the N11 (get in the left lane early for the exit) to access the starting point. Each year group gets ready for starters orders, before taking off in a burst of speed.  The whole exercise takes about one hour for all groups to compete.

Despite being a recreational cycling club, the competition for shortest time to climb the 4.3km route from Kilmacanogue up Rocky Valley (R760 and R755) provides an edge to the evening.

Christy and John take the times at the top of the hill and the winners of each year group are recognised on Prize-giving evening.
