||The Wicklow 200, one of Ireland's
Premier Cycling Challenges, is now in it's 33rd year and is organised
by the Irish Veteran Cyclist's Association. Participants have a choice
on the day when they reach the village of Laragh,of doing the Wicklow
200 (200 Kms) or the Wicklow 100 (100 Kms).
The 200 Kms event which is not for the fainthearted, takes in most
of the famous beauty spots of Co. Wicklow.
|Starting in Greystones and heading to Kilmacanogue,
Roundwood, Laragh, the Wicklow Gap, Holywood, Baltinglass, Aghavannagh,
Slieve Mann, Drumgoff, Glenmalure, Rathdrum, south to the Meeting

Those of you who have ridden a number of W200 events will know that
we commission a specially struck medal each year for the Wicklow 200.
We feel that each event and each finisher deserve a medal that is
as unique as the day of the event itself, rather than a generic medal.
