What is Ride Dingle?

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Ride Dingle is the latest and most exciting cycle sportif to be added to the cycle event calendar. Elite Event Management who produce the Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare as well as the Quest Adventure Series and other events, bring you this new event in conjunction with Dingle Cycling Club.

Dingle Cycling Club have run this event at a local level for many years. They are now partnering with Elite Event Management to grow the event and bring more people to Dingle for the annual cycle. The cycle organisers are very proud to partner with the Camphill Community Dingle to raise awareness as well as funding through proceeds from the cycle. Camphill Communities work with people with intellectual disabilities and other kinds of special needs.

Cycle enthusiasts will have the opportunity to choose from two routes, a 55km route around Slea Head or a longer route of 120km which will take in Slea Head and then continue on to the Conor Pass and Anascaul via Camp and back to Dingle.

Dingle will be the scene of much celebration post-event. All participants will receive a customised medal, food, access to the Japanese hot tubs and there will be plenty of music and entertainment on into the evening.

Oliver Kirwan, Race Director is excited to work on this great event, “This cycle is on one of the most dramatic routes I’ve ever encountered. Because so much of it is on the coastline it’s a constant stream of photo-opportunities – but you’ll be much too busy pedaling to think about that. It’s an event that has a great reputation locally and we want to grow it so more people can access it and enjoy this unspoilt, challenging route that will keep you coming back for more.”
