Support Irish Community Air Ambulance, MS Ireland West Cork Branch, and the Durrus Men’s Shed in this 3 route Charity Cycle along the Wild Atlantic Way!
The Wild Atlantic Mizen Cycle (formerly The West Cork Emergency Services & Friends Charity Cycle) will be based in Bantry, West Cork and will be held on Saturday, 13th July 2019.
See the stunning scenery of West Cork by cycling the Wild Atlantic Way around the Mizen and Sheep’s Head Peninsulas. There are three routes: 130k, 100k and a 65k route, all starting and finishing in Bantry.
The Wild Atlantic Mizen Cycle is held to raise funds for local charities. Thanks to the help of our many sponsors, we ensure that practically every cent raised goes to the charities. The cycle is organised by the West Cork Emergency Services and Friends, primarily made up of members of An Garda Síochána, Cork County Fire Service, HSE Ambulance Service, West Cork Civil Defence, The Red Cross and The Irish Coastguard.
Now in its 16th year, this cycle has already raised over €425,000 for local West Cork charities.
Registration/ sign–on will be at Bantry Fire Station on Friday evening 12th July from 7.00pm to 8.30pm and on Saturday morning 13th July from 7.30am to 8.30am. The cycle will start at 9.00am; participants can start before this time but the Support Vehicles will not be available until the official starting time.
There will be water stops and food stops en route and there will be a post-cycle party in Bantry afterwards led by a BBQ in the Fire Station. A repair/ breakdown van will be available on the day but you are encouraged to have your bike serviced beforehand.
