Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2018

For anyone who's interested next years cycle takes place on July 7th, it's doesn't seem to be as popular as in previous years, last years didn't sell out for many reasons, now there's a long discussion in itself. The demand has definitely dropped from say 3 or 4 years ago. Registration opens on March 10th.

I've committed to it this year, never done one before.
Is it do-able on a hybrid?

I saw that as I was reading through the 2017 thread. Mad men, towels stuffed under the saddle and everything.

The rest of the lads I'll be with will probably have road bikes, but that shouldn't make a huge difference as they won't be racing around either.

All sorts of shapes and sizes do this cycle, some looking to improve their times and others simply out for a fun day on the bike.
Last year I chatted to a local who had a track pump strapped to his crossbar a bag of tubes hanging from his handlebars and a bottle of miwadi jammed into the bottle cage. Apparently he had a miserable time the previous year with punctures so wasn't taking any chances....
It's a great cycle and a good buzz no matter what your goal is.

Yup. I passed a lad on Coomakista on an old hybrid. Wearing jeans and leather dress shoes. He must have been raw by the end of it.
