Following that will be the Ring of Clare on 29th July with 1,000 cyclists gracing Ennis and lastly the Tour de Boyne Valley on 10th September, a new event to this year’s three part series.


Speaking about the ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series, Cathal Kealey, Events & Sponsorship Manager at ŠKODA Ireland, said; “ŠKODA’s association with cycling goes all the way back to 1895 when ŠKODA first starting manufacturing bicycles, and we are delighted to have continued this association even as the brand progressed and moved into the automotive industry. We are delighted by the interest in last year’s inaugural ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series and we are really looking forward to building on that success this year and getting move people involved and pedaling around Ireland.”


The ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series has been developed for all ages and abilities with both a short and long distance option available for participants at all three events ranging from 70km to 160km making the series perfect for mixed groups.
