Event description

Description

Better Life Cycle is back with its sixth event, the Clon to Clon Challenge, taking place on Saturday, 1 June 2019 in Clonakilty, Co Cork.

Two routes will be on offer - 160 km and 75 km - both of which are challenging and scenic. Better Life Cycle is different from typical sportives in that cyclists are grouped together by preferred speed, ensuring that everyone involved can safely complete the event at their own pace, while at the same time providing a more social atmosphere within each group.

Both routes start and finish at the Clonakilty Park Hotel. The longer route heads north out of Clonakilty to Enniskeane, west through Dunmanway and Drimoleague before stopping in Bantry for the first food stop at approx 58km. After leaving Bantry, cyclists will head onto the Mizen Penninsula as far as Toormore, before turning back towards Schull, through Ballydehob and on to Skibbereen for the second food stop at approx 116km. Cyclists will then travel on to Leap where they will turn right along the coast to Glandore, Rosscarbery, Owenahincha and back to Clonakilty along by the sea.

The 75km route heads towards Dunmanway out of Clonakilty, turning left for Skibbereen before entering the town, where the food stop for this route will be. Cyclists will afterwards head back towards Clonakilty, again turning right in Leap on to the coast road to Glandore and on to Rosscarbery, and back to Clonakilty along the N71 road.
