The Ring Of Kerry charity cycle takes place on the 2nd of July 2022. It is more than a one-day cycling event. It’s about everyday people coming together and giving generously of their time to participate, fundraise and get involved. It’s this special sense of community spirit that makes the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle experience stand out.
From 6am in Killarney, you’ll see people from all ages and walks of life set off in high spirits as they embark on the 170-kilometre route of spectacular scenery that is the ‘Ring of Kerry’. Set along the Wild Atlantic Way, ‘The Ring’ is a route steeped in history and lore as much as it is celebrated for its beauty.
En route, you’ll cycle through Cahirciveen, close to the birthplace of Daniel O’Connell who famously campaigned for Catholic emancipation in the 19th century.
At the seaside town of Waterville, you’ll pass through a favourite holiday location of celebrated comedian and filmmaker, Charlie Chaplin.
At Kelly’s Cross, you may pause to take in the house of Betty Breen who paints her home a different colour every year to mark this special occasion. On challenging hills, you may spot groups of people waving flags and drumming heartily to spur you on your journey.
From Killarney to Kenmare, from Sneem to Cahirciveen, and home again, you’re sure to receive a hero’s welcome from the heart-warming cheers of thousands of supporters. Back in Killarney, there’s a carnival atmosphere that’s charged with emotion as tired but jubilant cyclists conquer the finish line and receive their medals.
Then there’s music, festivity, and celebration as everyone becomes part of the Ring of Kerry Charity cycle experience.
