Ring of Kerry Cycle important notice

After much deliberation by the Committee and due to the uncertainties surrounding Covid-19, it has been decided that for the first time in its 37 years, The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2020 is cancelled. This decision was not taken lightly, and our chosen charities were at the fore of our decisions, along with the health and safety of all participants and volunteers.

However, we can confirm that The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2021 will go ahead on Saturday 3rd of July 2021. It is a difficult time for many of the chosen charities and indeed most charities across Ireland which is why we remain committed to our charity partners.

A choice will be offered to all those who have registered for the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2020. Recognising the difficult circumstances that cyclists, charities and our volunteers find themselves in at this challenging time, all registrants will be offered 3 choices:

1. Donate your 2020 registration monies to your chosen charity.

2. Defer your registration to the cycle on Saturday 3rd July 2021.

3.
Refund of your €100 registration fee and associated merchandise / donation.

All registrants must submit their preference through www.ringofkerrycycle.ie on or before Sunday 31st May 2020 and their preference will be processed before the end of July 2020. Should they choose not to respond, their registration and associated merchandise and donation (if any) will be automatically carried over to the 2021 event.

The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle will be emailing all registered participants and providing them with a choice of what to do with their current registration.
