ŠKODA Ireland’s new three-part nationwide cycling initiative, the ‘ŠKODA Celtic Cycle Series’, which kicked off earlier this summer with the renowned Tour de Conamara, continues with two events still to come in Ennis and Drogheda.

The new initiative is part of ŠKODA’s ongoing commitment to cycling in Ireland and will see 4,500 cyclists take to the saddle over the course of the three events.

The ŠKODA GranFondo Hibernia Cycle takes place in Ennis on Sunday 31st July with participants having the option of two route distances; 100km and for those that like a challenge 150km.

The ŠKODA GranFondo Hibernia routes include the best of what Clare has to offer cyclists and visitors, Cyclists will cruise along the Wild Atlantic Way, travel through the international tourism award-winning Loop Head peninsula and along the beautiful Shannon Estuary waters.

The event takes in some of Clare’s best known local cycling landmarks and a grandstand ŠKODA finish will be waiting for cyclists in Ennis with the renowned Clare welcome.

The last of the three events, the ŠKODA Boyne Valley Classic, takes place on Saturday 17th September in Drogheda.

It promises to be a fantastic challenge for all levels with an 80km and a 140km route option available to participants.

The route will bring participants along some of the best cycling roads in Louth and Meath passing through the famous Boyne Valley.

Cyclists who have registered for all three Celtic Series events before September 7th will be rewarded with an exclusive SKODA Cycling backpack.
