Ring of Beara Cycle 2020 sells out within 24hrs

The Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare 2020 again took less than 24hrs to sell out completely. Over 4200 spaces for the event were snapped up by cycle enthusiasts who have secured the date in the diary for 2020.

The popularity of the event is not only testament to the great reception riders receive all along the Beara Peninsula but also the state of cycle tourism in Ireland.

Mickey ‘Ned’ O’Sullivan of the Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare Organising Committee said, “It’s wonderful to see the event selling out so quickly again. We’ve had five brilliant years to date and I have no doubt 2020 will be no different. The event receives great support from the communities along the route and the fantastic volunteers who make the event possible. We’re looking forward to next May already!”

Participants chose between 110km or 140km routes for the cycle when the event went on pre-sale for past-participants on Tuesday 24th September and opened to the general public on Wednesday 25th September.

Earlier this month the Ring of Beara Organising Committee presented cheques totalling nearly €54,000 in donations to Castletownbere Community Hospital, Castletownbere Day Care Centre, Kenmare Family Resource Centre, Kenmare Special Olympics, Kenmare Special Needs Group and St John of God Services Kenmare.

If anyone is interested in volunteering for the event next year, please email info@elitevents.ie. The Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare takes place on 23rd May 2020.
