This cycle takes place on the 9th /10th July 2022
Gran Fondo Wicklow 2022 is a new event that is coming to Ireland on 9 July 2022. It is supported by well known club Starsky Cycling with their amazing efforts in organizing races across Leinster in Ireland. In 2021 they were proud hosts of Leinster Criterium Championships which was a great achievement for the club.
Their endeavours took them to take Wicklow Mountain cycling to the next level. The routes of 86 km (Medio Fondo) and 120 km (Gran Fondo) are set within the most breathtaking scenery in Wicklow Mountains you will ever experience. Both routes are challenging, with Gran Fondo targeted for the strongest, most seasoned of the riders. 120 km in Wicklow Mountains is said to be one of the toughest you will experience, but we guarantee you another level of a challenge with our Gran Fondo. Check out the routes and sign up for the ultimate test of your skill, power and endurance.
We have prepared four different races over the two day period.
