You might see a few old rusty bikes amongst the sparkling peloton at this year’s Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle as The Ian O’Connell Trust calls on mere mortals to take up the Vintage Bike Challenge.

The 35th Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle kicks off on Saturday 7 July. This year the Ian O’Connell Trust is calling on all those who always said never to take up the Vintage Bike Challenge!

All it means is that you register for the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle for Ian O’Connell, search your shed or attic for an old bike and then join them on the day for a memorable day out on your rusty stead. The iconic charity cycle covers 175 km around the Ring of Kerry.

Each year the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle raises money for people in need. It has accumulated around €15 million for 150 charities over the last 35 years.

This year, proceeds from the event will go towards Ian O’Connell’s recovery, a 16-year-old from Killarney who suffered serious neck and spine injuries after falling from his bike last August. O’Connell is currently receiving rehabilitation at the National Rehabilitation Centre in Dun Laoghaire but is expected to return to his home soon where he will continue ongoing rehabilitation.
