For anyone at a loose end over the May Bank Holiday weekend, there is a sportive being run in Northern Ireland. The initial release saw all 1000 places filled and as a result a further 200 are being released tomorrow (Fri) at 10 am. There will be three routes. The Gran Fondo being the most popular as it follows Stage 2 obviously. So you can combine the Sportive at the beginning of the week and then watch the peleton a few days later.
