Ride Description

General Information 

The King of Kerry Ride explores deeply the County Kerry in the South West of Ireland, where we base ourselves in three fantastic locations, Kenmare, Killarney and Dingle.  From there we explore by bike three breathtaking peninsulas in the shape of a crown, and delve into life in rural and coastal Ireland through interactions with the friendly local people.

The “Kingdom of Kerry” is one of the country’s most popular areas. Known for its enthralling combination of National Parks, epic mountains, sparkling lakes and lively towns. Shops, pubs, music venues and restaurants also abound – it’s not always about the bike!

The cycling is spectacularly scenic  in this region, as we venture onto the Iveragh, Beara and Dingle Peninsulas, where we will climb some of Ireland’s well known mountain passes and gaps, including the Healy Pass, Molls Gap and the Ring of Kerry. The 9 day trip will start with an arrival night in Dublin (DUB) on August 8th, 2023, before transferring to Kerry and cycling 250 miles (400 kilometers) over six days – an average of approximately 42 miles per day (67 km).  Our Irish adventure ends on August 16th with a coach transfer back to Dublin (DUB). 

Our ride is supported by WeAdventure Ltd. a Irish based cycle tours specialist with the experience and capabilities to conduct this epic adventure.  WeAdventu… (Join People Cycling to read more)

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.
