ŠKODA Ireland’s nationwide cycling initiative, the ‘ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series’ kicked off with the Tour de Conamara on Saturday 28th May. There were 3,000 cyclists that took to the saddle for one of Ireland’s most popular cycling events, which once again sold out in record time.
Participants travelled from 15 different countries to cycle this event. We had cyclists from France, Germany, USA, UK, Spain, Italy and one even from Australia to take part on Saturday, with two route options available, 80km and 140km, depending on how much of a challenge they were looking for! Both routes travelled through some of Ireland’s most scenic areas as they cycled with the backdrop of the Wild Atlantic Way.

The next event is the Ring of Clare on 16th July with over 1,600 cyclists gracing Ennis.
The ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series has been developed for all ages and abilities with both a short and long distance option available for participants at all three events ranging from 70km to 160km making the series perfect for mixed groups. Along with that it is a fantastic social occasion with a great atmosphere that is not be missed if you’re a keen cyclist.
ŠKODA will also have you looking the part with a top quality high performance cycling kit available to purchase at all events throughout the summer as well as ŠKODA dealerships nationwide!
