Hosted in Ennis, Co. Clare on Saturday 29th July 2017, the town is preparing for a major cycling party. The event will provide two route options for cyclists – the Ring of Clare 160km and the Ring of Clare 120km. Early registrations will receive an ex-clusive cycling jersey and be in a with a chance to win some great prizes from our event partners. Register before April 30th to receive a limited edition event jersey. Previously known as the Granfondo Hibernia, the Ring of Clare Cycle sportive event attracted over 1000 cyclists to Clare in 2016.
The decision to change the name to the Ring of Clare was to build on the international profile of Clare as a leading cycling destination and the iconic areas on the route from the Wild Atlantic Way coastline, Loop Head peninsula and the newly established Wild Atlantic Way Shannon Estuary Loop.
The SKODA Ring of Clare Cycle sportive routes include the best of what Clare has to offer cyclists and visitors. Cyclists will cruise along the Wild Atlantic Way, travel through the inter-national tourism award winning Loop Head peninsula and along by the beautiful Shannon Estuary waters, the new Wild Atlantic Way Estuary Loop. The event takes in some of Clare’s best known local cycling landmarks. A grandstand SKODA finish will be waiting for cyclists and the renowned Clare welcome.
