We have secured 4 houses at a discount for our Cork/Kenmare pedal, a weekend not to be missed . Deposits have been paid and all moneys must be paid over 6 weeks in advance as its all on a no refund basis. Please confirm therefore if you intend travelling and note the cost is 85 Euro for two nights stay in a house.Free use of the Leisure facilities are thrown in and we will book meals etc. closer to the day.Price assumes 5 person occupancy of house so if 4 in a house price will increase marginally but suffice it to say GREAT VALUE all round not to mention great company and cycling….BRING IT ON I HEAR YOU SAY!
This time there will be a small change in that we will travel by car to Kenmare on the Friday and have an 11AM start for the Beara circuit and on the Saturday we will do the Ballaghabeama/Ballaghasheen circuit
