Ring of Beara Cycle Welcomes E-Bikes!

The Ring of Beara Cycle will welcome participants to complete the 110km and 140km routes on an electric bike.

We recognize some of the hills around the Ring of Beara are very steep and challenging, and in order to make the event as inclusive as possible, we want to get the message out there that electric bikes are welcome.

How are you going to get around the route on one battery? Don’t worry! We can facilitate battery swaps. 

All you need to do is drop your spare battery off to us (fully charged of course!) at registration on the evening before then event, Friday 26th May only.

Your spare battery will then be waiting for you to pick up at Castleownbere on Saturday, at a dedicated area where you can collect your new battery and drop off your old one.

Castletownbere is 80km in along the route if you are doing the 140km route, and 50km in if you are doing the 110km route.

We will then return your used battery to Kenmare for collection by you after you cross the finish line.

 As part of our commitment to making the Ring of Beara Cycle kinder on the environment, the addition of electric bikes continues to keep it as accessible as possible.
