Tour de Achill 7th September 2019
The 2019 Tour de Achill event takes place on Saturday 7th September.
Cycling event on Achill Island, on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, with three levels of challenge. In previous years this has comprised:
38K – a fairly flat cycle around the Currane peninsula.
65K – a bit more of a challenge, taking in Currane and the Atlantic Drive.
110K – a real test. Every year we hear its tougher than some of the bigger and longer events in Ireland. So if you want to test yourself and take in some fantastic views, passing six Blue Flag beaches, then this is the one for you.
Food and drinks available before, during and after the event. Showers should be available at Achill GAA club house, Achill Sound.
Event Details & Schedule:
Registration 8am to 9.20am in Achill Sound Hall (Halla Acla), behind McLoughin’s Bar.
Three routes all start in the same direction, at 9.30am.
There is plenty of (free) parking at the Hall and around the village of Achill Sound.
Make sure your bike is in good working order as there are some steep hills along the way on the longer routes.
RULES OF THE ROAD APPLY.
All road junctions will be road marked and location numbers. There will be marshalls at main road junctions only.
As it is the Wild Atlantic Way, bring suitable clothing.
