This cycle is one of the most popular fundraising events in the west of Ireland in no small part due to the warm welcome cyclists receive from the local communities along the routes.

CYCLE SAFETY

Our event is a leisure cycle not a race and it takes place on open roads. It is of paramount importance that cyclists obey the rules of the road at all times showing courtesy and consideration for other road users and riding in a manner that is safe to themselves and others. All cyclists participate at their own risk and they must rely on their own ability in dealing with all hazards. We ask that you please obey the instructions of gardaí, marshals, helpers and support staff at all times. When out on open roads we ask that cyclists only ride two abreast when safe to do so and go in single file when necessary. The use of earbuds while cycling is prohibited and cyclists are asked to refrain from drinking alcohol while on the route.

All participants should have a level of fitness appropriate to their chosen route.
