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.
