Did the title grab ya did it? Good, plan acomplished! I can let you know now that there was no dragon slaying involved in this post so if thats what you were looking for you will be bitterly disapointed I'm afraid. It also has nothing with wanking. It is however about the Dragon Sportive cycle my dad and I did last week.
It's a new enough sportive as this was only the second year it was held. That hasn't however stoped it from already building quite the reputation for being a tuffy. There are two routes, a 80km and a 130km. Both of which begin in Enniscorthy and loop round Mount Leinster. We opted for the 80km route as we were using it as a warm up for the Ring of Kerry the following week.
The first 30km of the cycle are a breeze as it runs along one of the main roads to New Ross. It's not until the road turns off and heads for the mountains that things begin to go, well up. On both stages you pass over Mount Leinster before returning back to Enniscorthy. For the size of the cycle it is definitely one of the harder ones on my cycling calender but is also one of the ones that I look most forward to.
