Aillwee Cave Family Loop The annual Tour de Burren cycle is taking place on Saturday June 20th and is tipped to be the biggest gathering yet with hundreds of cyclists expected to take part. The cycle is this year being sponsored by An Post as part of the An Post Cycle Series which is taking in Cork, Sligo, Waterford and Meath this summer.

There will be an extra route on the list this year with 3 routes to choose from:

  • Aillwee Cave Family Loop (10km)
  • Corkscrew Challenge (60km)
  • Burnin’ Burren (120km)

The cycle has grown hugely popular over the past 6 years and is complimented by visiting participants every time on the excellent organisation and support given to them during the trips. It’s also a chance to take in some of the most beautiful scenery the west coast has to offer.
