The Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford

Venue: Dungarvan, County Waterford

The Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford, now in its 9th year, is Ireland’s premier leisure cycling event, offering something for everyone with 12k, 50k, 100k and 160k routes. The festival was founded by the desire of the Waterford people to pay tribute to the name of Sean Kelly in a manner befitting his legendary cycling status. Each year, Waterford County Council and Waterford Sports Partnership come together with local cycling clubs and community groups to plan and deliver this exciting event.

The 2014 event was an unrivalled success with over 6,500 riders taking part across the four routes. The 2015 Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford is part of the An Post Series, an Irish Sports Council initiative, of five cycling events throughout Ireland in 2015.

There are four different routes. On Saturday, the 12k Kelly Spin will take place; and Sunday will see the 50k Kelly Cruise, the 100k Kelly Heritage Route and the 160k Kelly Comeragh challenges being undertaken.

Please note Sunday’s events are limited to 5,000 participants. The Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford is about participation, fun and sporting challenge.
