Lap The Lough is a not-for-profit Cycle challenge around Lough Neagh, the largest lake in Ireland and Britain. This is Lap 8.
The route is around 130km, roughly 81 miles in old money. Sounds a lot? There are stops every 35km (25 miles).
We're going anticlockwise this year - left turns all day. We should get round quicker and hopefully increase safety further.
We're delighted to be working with Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council on this year's Lap the Lough.
Lap 8 is on the 25th Aug 2013 at Peatlands Park. Sign-on starts at 7am and closes at 8.45am. We leave at 9.00am.
Early-bird registration opens 1st Feb for £25. The earlier you sign up the cheaper it is. All registration closes 31st July.
Never cycled this kind of distance before? Here's a tried and tested training plan to get you to the finish.
If everyone raised £500, that would equate to £1,000,000 going to good causes. Use LTL to fundraise!
If you fancy setting up a trade stand at the start/finish area to show your stuff to over 1000 cyclists, get in touch.
The last 7 laps are covered over on the forum. Tons of info about the event, if you're new to the event it's a good place to start.
Safety at the event is the most important consideration. Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the safety instructions.
