Did you miss out on becoming an escort at the Rose of Tralee. The search is on for the Westportif Mayo Rose of Tralee escort. You must have your own bike and be able to do an 80km leisure cycle escorting the beautiful Mayo Rose on the route on July 16, are you up for the challenge?
Fionna McDarby, the Mayo Rose of Tralee 2016, has agreed to become the ambassador for Westportif 2016. Fionna cites healthy eating, exercise, and mental health as things she wants to promote through her role, so a local event in Mayo such as the Westportif is a perfect choice.
If it sounds like you, then all you have to do is like and share the post on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Westportif-139279939582578/ ) and comment why it should choose you. The escort will receive free entry to the Westportif, a free Westportif kit (jersey and shorts ), and dinner in Westport on the night.
The Westportif Cycling Weekend takes place on Saturday July 16 in Westport. Cyclists can choose from three routes, 80km, 120km and 160km taking in the breathtaking scenery of Croagh Patrick, Mweelrea (Connacht's highest mountain ), Doolough Lake, Delphi, Killary Fjord, Ashleigh Falls, Leenane village, and the shores of Lough Mask in Tourmakeady.
The shorter 80km route is reasonably flat and is very suitable for novice and family cyclists. It hugs the scenic Clew Bay coastline town of Louisburgh and continues straight to Kileen village with views of Clare and Inishturk islands and the famous beaches of Silver and white strands this is surly panoramic cycling at its best before turning inland through spectacular Doo Lough Valley to Delphi and the lovely Aashleigh Falls. The return to Westport is via the Erriff Valley on the main road. For more information log on to www.westportif.ie/
