Simply the best...
The Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif will form part of a series of bi – annual Cycle events along the coastal route (from Kinsale in West Cork to Muff in Donegal) which will promote the Wild Atlantic Way as a premium Cycling destination internationally and domestically. The Sportif series will be fully supported, multi – stage events that will allow our cyclists concentrate on pumping the legs and taking in the wonderful scenery, letting the team at Ride Wild take care of everything else!
Ireland’s wonderful Wild Atlantic Way is the longest signed coastal route in the world at 2,500km (1,700 miles) in length. This wonderful stretch of coastline is divided into six regions, and the Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif will take you on an amazing journey through each and every one of them. The Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif will take you on a route that’s designed by Cyclists for Cyclists. Challenging climbs and descents coupled with some of the most breath taking scenery on the planet make this a must – do bucket list Sportif. You can sign up for the whole Tour, or perhaps do a number of stages over the duration of the series, either way the Wild Atlantic Way will take your breath away and make you want return time and time again!
The April/May 2018 Cycle Sportif will be geared very much to the Club Cyclist looking to get some serious miles into the legs in preparation for the season ahead. The route will be split in four blocks of four stages and will facilitate Cycling clubs both in Ireland and abroad use the event as a pre – season training camp. What better way to prepare for the year ahead than a series of back to back Sportives. For Cycling clubs who sign up with 10 or more members we’ll even arrange to pick up your bikes!
A Cycle Sportif is all about the bike, the route and the camaraderie, but when the route involves Ireland’s unique and magical Wild Atlantic Way it becomes so much more than that. Ireland as a nation prides itself on the warmth of its welcome, so we expect you to become one of us for the duration of your visit and enjoy the many wonderful sights, amazing pubs with traditional Irish music, and restaurants serving what we believe to be the best produce and freshest seafood found anywhere in the world. We’re asking you to Jump into Ireland and come and join us!
