CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Shay Elliott

Ride 3 kilometers gaining 226 meters at 7.6% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Stephen Rochford, Longwood, Co. Meath, Ireland.

It's not too often that a climb is named after a person but when it is, there's usually a good reason. The Shay Elliott climb is named after Ireland's first international cycling star. He was the first English speaker to wear the Yellow Jersey and the first english speaker to win stages in the Giro, Tour and Vuelta.

 This climb was one of his favorite training spots and features as the KOM prime in the memorial race which takes place here. https://www.strava.com/segments/19163311

Starting in the tiny village of Glenmalure, the climb is pretty tough right from the get-go. Despite being only 3km long, its location means that it's most likely you have already put in some mileage to get there. The average gradient is almost 8% with very little respite and a few short digs over 10%.

 The road is quite narrow but the surface is generally in good shape. There are great views at the too and a monument to the man himself at the top. The climb can also be done from the other side. It is longer but less steep and again has some spectacular views of the valleys as you climb to the top.  https://www.strava.com/segments/655123
