The West Cork Emergency Services & Friends Charity Cycle is now called “The Wild Atlantic Mizen Cycle”. The event will be held on Saturday the 9th July 2016.
See the stunning scenery of West Cork by cycling the Wild Atlantic Way around the Mizen and Sheeps Head Peninsulas. There are two routes, 130k and 100k, starting and finishing in Bantry.
