Happy Christmas to all our Sponsors

On behalf of the South Tipp Cycle Club we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our Sponsors for their continued support for our club in 2015. Kentz -SNC Lavalin, Hankook, Boston Scientific, Weatherglaze, Eamon Gleeson Tyres, Colaiste Dun Iascaigh, Roches Cycles, John Byrne Plumbing World Wide Cycles and Abbott Vascular.
None of our success over the last year would have been possible without the very generous support of our sponsors and none of our plans for 2016 and beyond can come to fruition without you.  On behalf of all the members of the South Tipp Cycle club we would like to thank them for their support in the past and look forward to working with them in coming years. 

Finally we would also like to take this opportunity to wish our Sponsors, their families, friends and staff every best wish for a Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous 2016.

There will be a 60km and a 120km.  Exact route maps will be published closer to the day but both will include the iconic (but very achievable) Vee Climb.
