The Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif is a unique 16-day fully-supported multi-stage cycling event covering 2,095 km of Ireland’s spectacular west coast. Perched on Europe’s most western edge, the Wild Atlantic Way route passes through some of the most dramatic scenery in the world as it winds its way along the coastline of 9 counties jutting into the Atlantic Ocean. Stretching from Kinsale, County Cork in the south to County Donegal’s Inishowen peninsula in the far north, the Wild Atlantic Way is the longest coastal cycling route in the world.
The route is both challenging and rewarding, Ireland’s coast roads are dotted with steep climbs and sweeping descents to give you a cycling experience you will never forget. The 16 stages are broken into 4 blocks of 4 consecutive sportifs specially designed by cyclists for cyclists to challenge you and bring you up against a tough early-season fitness test. The food is good, the road surface is great, and the views are out of this world – what are you waiting for?
