An Post Tour de Burren 2015

 JUNE  20th 2015

This is the 12th year of the Burren Cycling Club’s Tour de Burren as a sportif, Last year, the event was voted, by Cycling Ireland Members of which there are over 23,000, as the best leisure cylcling event in Ireland!!

The event started all those years ago when a few enthusiastic members of the Club got together and organised a spin in one of the most beautiful areas of Ireland. The spin, soon became an annual event and interest grew, especially with the lure of brown bread and smoked salmon at the food stop in Lisdoonvarna!

In 2009, The Irish Sports Council secured funding from An Post, to provide support to a five cycle series in Ireland. Clare Local Sports Partnership and the Burren Cycling Club successfully bid to make the Tour de Burren one of An Post Cycle Series events. Today, the An Post Tour de Burren is recognised as one of the ‘Must Do’ cycle sportifs in the country. Indeed, it has been acclaimed in the past as Irelands Premier Cycle Sportif, that many try to emulate, year on year!

Today, the five events of the An Post Cycle Series are based in Sligo, Clare, Meath, Waterford and Cork. 1n 2014, over 17,000 participants took part in the An Post Cycle Series nationally.
