Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif information night to be held in Clifden


Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif information night is to be held in Clifden this evening, 4th April at 7pm in the Station House Hotel.

Tonight’s community briefing is being held at the Station House, Clifden, by Fáilte Ireland in conjunction with cycling specialists Ride Wild. Ride Wild is managed by Michael O’Boyle, a (young) veteran of European cycling events.

Over the last few years he has worked with both Failte Ireland and Tourism Ireland in planning cycling routes along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way, culminating in him and his team at Ride Wild being appointed as the management company for their flagship cycling event, the Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif.

Ride Wild has recently been awarded Ambassador Status by the leading US Route Planning company Ride with GPS. The award, a first of its kind in Ireland, is given to cycling companies who display a first class knowledge of what it takes to deliver an amazing cycling experience, but who also have attention to detail in their knowledge of their particular region as a cycling destination.

The inaugural Wild Atlantic Way Cycle Sportif was launched for the first time last year being so successful that it has since been organised to take place twice this year (2018).

The Spring event is aimed at domestic and international club cyclists who want to kick start their summer season with some of Ireland’s classic climbs and use the Sportif as a training camp to give you that competitive edge in your summer season.

All information with regards to the Spring Event is available here.

All are welcome to come along to the community briefing in the Station House, Clifden this evening at 7pm where the team can be met and there will also be an opportunity to get involved in the Q&A session.
