Cycling Ireland to Host Online Sportive

Cycling Ireland will host a charity sportive this Sunday, May 3rd on the online training platform, Zwift.

Many of Ireland’s top professional cyclists, including Nicolas Roche and Eddie Dunbar, will join in support of those who have discovered stationary cycling in a virtual world during these difficult times.

Hundreds of people are expected to ride the virtual sportive from the safety of their own homes using a stationary bike and turbo trainer, making it the largest mass participation sporting event in the country.

The event caters to a variety of fitness levels with the option to ride for a portion of, or the full 75-kilometre route.

Participants have the opportunity to chat with Ireland’s top professional cyclists as well as friends from around the country using Cycling Ireland’s chat app, discord.

Cycling Ireland’s designated charity for the event is the Irish Cancer Society.
