HeadQuarters: Garryvoe, Co-Cork
Located 8 miles from Midleton, departing Midleton, head for Castlemartyr and take the right at the bridge (left if you are coming from Youghal direction), centre of the town and continue for 4 miles on that road and you will come to Garryvoe. There is plenty of parking at the beach front and the hotel which is the main HQ is unmissable.
Kids Ride 11AM / 12.30PM Jun/Senior Ride
Nicolas will ride for 6-10 km with the kids at 11AM. This is free and open to all kids and family members who want to ride with the juveniles. This will be no more than 10km and we will try and help and assist all kids to ride with Nicolas.
I cannot wait to come to Midleton again this year and see all my friends and fans. It has been an incredible year riding with my new team at Saxo Bank Tinkoff and Alberto Contador. I look forward to telling you all about it and talking about my first Grand Tour Stage win at the Vuelta.— Nicolas Roche
All of us at Midleton Cycling and Triathlon Club are honoured and very happy that Nicolas Roche, another one of Irelands famous son's when it comes to Grand Tour Stage victories, is willing and able to join us again for the second year in East Cork. To have such a talent willing to take time out of his busy schedule to come down to us and tell us about his year riding with his new Saxo Bank team and that great win in Spain will be incredible but more to the point, to have him coach our new young Cadets and spend some time with them will be fantastic. Maybe one day, one of them will be like Nicolas.— Ken Savage, Club Chairman
