Join the Beara Charity Cycle this July
to raise funds for some fantastic West Cork charities!

Beara Charity Cycle Beara peninsula Co CorkThis year we are offering three routes of varying distances so we are guaranteed to a have a route to suit you. All routes travel through the Beara Peninsula and give the cyclist the chance to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the area whilst challenging your legs on our famed Beara hills.

Our three routes are as follows:

The Healy Pass Loop 51.3km

This proved a very popular route last year with many of our participants undertaking the route for the first time (and surviving!)

The Gear Changer 81.3km

This cycle route stretches from Castletownbere to Allihies to Lauragh and then takes you over the Healy Pass before heading for home. While this route measures approx. 81.3km, please don’t be fooled by the distance. We believe that this route feels more like 100km due to the challenging nature of the course.

The Chain Breaker 136.3km

This version of the Beara Charity Cycle route is for the hardened cyclist who relishes attacking the hills and pushing themselves to reach the finish line. It is the Gear Changer (above) plus an additional trip around the Healy Pass. It may be a case of mind over matter here for some as you will know what’s ahead of you the second time up the Pass!!

Rest assured that there will be delicious food at the food stops; water stops where you need them; encouragement and camaraderie along the route, and a warm Beara welcome before you start and on your return.

Enjoy a fantastic day’s cycling through some of the most dramatic scenery in Ireland while raising money for four very worthy Beara charities.
