Registration for the 2017 Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle is now open. The event, now in it’s 34th year, is the biggest one day charity fundraising event in Munster, attracting thousands of leisure cyclists to take on the 180-kilometre route and raise money for charity. To date the Ring of Kerry Cycle has raised over €11.9 million for Kerry Charities.

The registration process for 2017 has changed compared to previous years. All cyclists will now be required to register online with 10,000 places available from Saturday 25th February.

As part of the registration process, all participants will be required to select one of the 10 main beneficiary charities, to cycle for. Each charity will be allocated 1,000 cyclists and when the allocated spaces for a charity are full – registrants will have the option to select another charity which has availability.

  1. Cycle 160k,get back to the finish and find nowwhere to sit down for a chat as all seats taken up by non cyclists drinking pints….never mind the extortionate entry fee ….lovely route but ill do it some other time…

    • It’s more like 180 km, but the worst possible time to do the route is when the charity cycle is on. Best thing to do is look for a day with a good weather forecast and really enjoy it. The ring of Beara is a better loop even though it’s shorter as it doesn’t go around all the decent climbs.
