UNIQUE MOONLIGHT CYCLE THROUGH CONNEMARA
WITH A FULL MOON AS YOUR CHAPERONE CHOOSE FROM 100KM AND 60KM DISTANCES ALONG THIS MAGNIFICENT PART OF THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY.

THE JOURNEY

This is not a race but a journey. Starting just before sunset you will cycle into the darkness. Enjoy the night time quiet while the light from the moon and stars help to guide your way.

THE ROUTE

The start and finishing points for 2017 have changed. You will start out from the Station House Hotel, Clifden, Co Galway. Your route is entirely on sealed roads and will pass through deep valleys, alongside still lakes and rugged coastline. Refreshment stops will be provided along the way.

THE REASON

This is an ideal way to kick-start your cycling for the year or to push you that little bit further. It is also just a wonderful way to spend a moonlit evening in April.
