Tour of the Knockmealdowns Cycle – May 4th 2014

The Knockmealdown Active  Tour of the Knockmealdowns Cycle has been an incredible success on its 2012 & 2013 runs, there are some photos of the 2012 event here and the 2013 event here. There have been plenty of people looking for a date for the Tour of the Knockmealdowns Cycle 2014 and, as you’ve seen, it will take place on the first Sunday in May.

The route pictured above is the longer of the two routes for 2014 (there are 40Km and 90Km cycles). The Tour of the Knockmealdowns Cycle 2014 itself will be just over 90km long and, like last year, there will also be a 40Km route (see routes at bottom of post). In a change from last year the event will start and complete in Clogheen rather than Ardfinnan, taking in all the Knockmealdown Active towns of Ballyporeen, Newcastle, Goatenbridge, Ardfinnan and back to Clogheen (there are also other towns in the trip).

Registration will be  from 9am. The cycle will start at 10am sharp. Check back here for any late changes to the itinerary.

You can find accommodation at a number of local establishments, see our Accommodation Page for a list of them.

Entry fee is €15 per person for the 40Km route and €20 for the 90Km route. For further details contact Jim O’Brien on 087 249 0089 or Kevin O’Donnell on 086 354 1700. You can also email info@knockmealdownactive.com.
