Croi charity cycle

    In preparation for the ring of Kerry charity cycle in a few weeks time I was thinking of going the Croi charity cycle on Sunday week.

    however I know nothing about the route or the event as such (bar what’s on their website) so if anybody has any feedback, suggestions or experiences to share (how challenging parts of it are, is it hilly, is it tough, roughly how long it takes, any advice) I would really appreciate it. I would be looking to do the longer route as well.

    About 110km. Very flat start and finish, middle is a bit lumpy but not hard, lovely scenary around the tip of the lake.

    A nice spin overall and recommended.

    There is a steepish pull out of Moycullen , early on . then rolling hills here and there, lovely route

    Apologies, just noticed they changed the route and it no longer circles the lake. Disappointed to see the new route which is and has been used by other charity spins. The idea of circling the lake was nice but I suppose traffic is getting heavier out to Headford.

    As above just 1 climb of any significance out if Moycullen but it's only 1.5km. then out along by the sea with nice views of the Aran Islands.

    Thanks so much for all the insights, much appreciated - it’s good just to have an idea of what lies ahead 🙂 It’ll be the last of the long spins before RoK in a couple of weeks time.
