The Great Railway Cycle Saturday 30th Sept 2017


The Great Railway Cycle features 60K and 100K distance options to accommodate a wide range of participants. The event visits many of the towns served by the old Bandon & South Coast Railway, heading west from Carrigaline towards Bandon and Clonakilty. The 100K route follows the Owenabue river as far as Halfway, passing through Ballygarvan and Ballinhassig and heads to Inishannon and Bandon before turning south to Kilbrittain. From there it heads west through Inchybridge to Ballinascarty and continues up the main N71 to Gaggin where soup and sandwiches will be provided. The route then returns to Carrigaline via the Dunmanway road passing through Bandon, Crossbarry and Halfway. The 60K route follows the 100K route as far as Bandon but then continues on west to join up with the return leg of the 100K route at Gaggin. See a full preview of both routes below.

Both the 60K and 100K cycles start from the Carrigaline Lions Youth Centre on Church Road, Carrigailne and both events also finish at the Youth Centre.
