Arising out of the eleven year success story that was the Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford, we are now introducing the Sean Kelly Dawn Chorus Cycle which is new for 2018 and will take place on the Waterford Greenway. This is a cycling event with a difference that you won’t want to miss!
Taking place on July 14th 2018, and starting in the village of Kilmacthomas in the heart of the magnificent Waterford Greenway, participants can choose to cycle east to Waterford City, starting at 4:30 a.m. or west towards Dungarvan, starting at 5 a.m.
The event is being organised by Waterford City & County Council as part of the 2018 Comeragh’s Wild Festival and is limited to 500 participants.
Participants can choose one of two routes. Both are fully off-road along the fantastic Waterford Greenway:
- The Sean Kelly Dawn Chorus Cycle-Waterford Greenway: 46km East Route
- The Sean Kelly Dawn Chorus Cycle-Waterford Greenway: 43km West Route
Both routes finish back in Kilmacthomas, where a well earned goody bag and hearty, healthy breakfast awaits.
Yet another incentive to encourage people to sign up for this exciting new event is that participants will be supporting not one, but two great charities which have been nominated by Mayor of Waterford City and County Council, Cllr. Pat Nugent. 50% of your entry fee will go directly to those two charities which include:
Once again, Waterford cycling legend, Séan Kelly lends his name and support to this event. Unfortunately Séan will miss this year’s inaugural event as he will be busy commentating on the Tour De France. He sends his best wishes and good luck to everyone taking part in the “Sean Kelly Dawn Chorus Cycle” on Waterford Greenway.
