Purple House Coast2Coast Cycle 2020

Type of Event : Cycling
When : 10th July 2020
Description :
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Purple House, we have not one, but two amazing cycling challenges planned for 2020, The Coast2Coast Cycle and The Mizen to Malin Cycle!

We want you to join us as we cycle to the four corners of Ireland to raise funds and awareness of our Cancer Support Services and ensure that no family living with Cancer is alone.

Leaving from Kinvara this two-day cycle challenge traverses the country to arrive in Bray along the promenade overlooking the Irish Sea. The route will be on well researched paved roads through scenic countryside utilising secondary and tertiary roads to minimise traffic and ensure the cycling is enjoyable.

The terrain is not unduly challenging, with no major climbs – the maximum elevation is 164metres with a 3% gradient over 1.5km to reach this point. However, it is pleasantly undulating and the second day at 120km is a long cycle and therefore some training would be beneficial to maximise the enjoyment of the ride.

Friday 10th July  - Transfer to Kinvara 

We will have a transfer bus to bring us to the start of the challenge in Kinvara. It will leave Bray at 2.30pm and be in Kinvara by 6pm after you get settled in the hotel we will have dinner and a pre-tour chat about the next two days and it will also be a chance to get to know everybody on the trip.

Saturday 11th July - Kinvara to Tullamore (124km)

We start the cycle out of Kinvara and head inland heading east towards the mighty Shannon. We will be on the small back roads connecting the midlands farms and small villages that are rarely seen. As we move along the unspoilt countryside we will cross the Shannon then we cycle past the bogs and into Tullamore to our hotel and a well earned rest and dinner.

Sunday 12th July  - Tullamore to Bray (120km)

We keep heading east on quiet backroads towards the river Liffey, heralding our arrival into the east.  Here we pass by farms and unspoilt countryside, parts of the country that most people rarely see. Finally, we make our way into Dublin and get our first glimpse of the sea, before heading south towards Bray. We then cycle to Bray beach and finish and the bandstand, and enjoy a well-earned celebration dinner in the Martello. Of course, the will be time for the traditional swim before dinner!
