Itinerary

Day 1 Arrival into Cork

Once you arrive into Cork airport there is a short transfer to your accommodation for the night, where you can register and meet the pie team, followed by dinner and an event briefing.

Day 2 – 124km, 1153m

The day starts with a short ride out from Cork, before we join some of the quiet back country roads that are ideal for cycling. The rolling hills in the morning are a great opportunity to warm your legs up, before you head towards some more rugged countryside in the afternoon. There is quick stop by Lough Gur before you push onto Limerick where your accommodation for the night awaits.

Day 3 – 143km, 1086m / 160km, 1129m

Having cycled through the majority of Limerick the day before, it’s a short ride before we find some amazing quiet roads in the Irish countryside. After the morning stop there is the option to cycle to the Cliffs of Moher which offer breath-taking views of jagged cliffs and the untamed Atlantic Ocean. The Wild Atlantic Way is our main route into Galway, where a warm shower and dinner await.

Day 4 – 145km, 871m

Today we head north from Galway past Lough Carrib and Lough Mask. The route goes through Easky Bog and then up through Sligo where a warm Irish welcome and dinner wait for you. Did we mention live Irish music to cap off the night?

Day 5 – 144km, 1143m / 158.8km, 1151mcharity events bike rides cycle fundraisers

Our penultimate day of riding sees us cycling over the border into Northern Ireland and around Lough Melvin. We carry on cycling towards Barnesmore Bog, past extensive heathland, then start to follow the River Foyle into Londonderry for the night.

Day 6 – 94km , 1185m / 125.5km, 1609m

From Londonderry we all head east cutting through forested areas such as the Roa Valley Country Park. Heading north west through Coleraine, we ride past the Bushmills distillery (no stopping yet!) and onto the Giants Causeway for the first of our finish celebrations. We catch our transfer to the hotel and in the evening celebrate the achievements of the last few days riding.

Day 7

Day at your leisure before catching the transfer to Belfast airport for your flight home.
