Achill Island: Achill Sound, Achill, Ireland
Tour de Achill is ALL cycled on the Wild Atlantic Way with fantastic views of Achills rugged coast line
There are three routes to cater for all cycling abilities.
38k is 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 6 Blue Flag beaches, then this is the one for you.
You will be well fed on all routes, before, during and after.
Showers are available at the local gaa club house
Registration 8am to 9:30 in Achill Sound Hall on the left in the village, just past the church
Three routes, all starting in the same direction at 9:45
There is plenty of parking space at the hall and around the village.
Make sure your bike is in good working order as there are some steep hills along the way on the longer routes.
