A new event at the OldVelos Cycling Festival 2022 will be a ca. 10mile Reliability Trial on Saturday the 17th at 6pm.
What’s a Reliability Trial? Reliability Trials are not races, but are rides which emphasise fitness, self reliance and navigational skills.
What’s the course? All we’re telling you now is it will be circa 10miles, and doable for all levels of fitness (no high mountains!), otherwise we’re not telling you! At race-start you will receive a map which shows the course, you must navigate it. The course will include gravel, road and boreen sections.
What bike should I use? There will be both a vintage and modern bike section. You do not need a gravel bike nor cyclocross tyres, though they may help. 19mm tubs are not advised.
Are there prizes? As this is not a race, there are not 1,2,3rd prizes. OldVelos may however recognise ride times, navigation and efforts of merit.
Is there an entry cost? Riders must pre-register and cost is €15 for Cycling Ireland members. Please enter here: https://eventmaster.ie/event/3mzmux4tZW
