Veloroos – Race Around Ireland

August 28, 2017 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

This Sunday 27th August 2017, the Australian all-female cycle group the Veloroos will be joining cyclists from all over the world in the 8thannual Race Around Ireland. In the shadow of the imposing Trim Castle, County Meath, the Veloroos will embark on their next challenge to cycle non-stop around the entire coast of Ireland!

With the support of Tourism Ireland, the Veloroos will be taking part in one of the toughest cycling challenges in the world, the Race Around Ireland. Lead by Julie-Anne Hazlett, the Veloroos are a team of female endurance cyclists passionate about pushing their boundaries on two wheeled adventures and encouraging more women to do the same.

This is a non-stop race which unlike other cycling races such as the Tour de France, is held on open roads. Once the clock starts, it won’t stop until they reach the finish line. The route never strays far from the stunningly rugged Irish coastline as it takes the riders from the start line in Trim through twenty-two counties taking in sights including Newgrange, the Causeway Coast, Malin Head, the Cliffs of Moher, the Ring of Kerry, Mizen Head, the Garden County (Wicklow) and back to the finish line in Moynalty, County Meath. The all-female team of 4 will be the first Australian team to enter this race, aiming to win the female category and smash the course record.

Sofia Hansson, Tourism Ireland’s  Manager of Australia and New Zealand said: “Tourism Ireland is delighted to sponsor the Veloroos in The Race Around Ireland.  This partnership will highlight Ireland as world-class cycling destination and showcase the amazing landscape and location you can experience along the dramatic coastlines of the island of Ireland”
