Cyclists Prepare To Descend On Tralee For Weekend

Posted by

Tour of Kerry1YOU still have a chance to get involved in a ‘wheelie’ good event in Tralee this weekend when the town plays host to the second annual Kingdom Alliance Sportive.

Kieran Ruttledge, said: “The Kingdom Alliance Sportive is effectively a Tour of Kerry cycle and it has already become a major three day event for Tralee,” said Kieran Ruttledge, CEO of Tralee Chamber Alliance.

“Last year the KAS brought substantial business to Tralee over the June Bank Holiday weekend as all stages start and finish in Tralee. We would like to surpass last year’s figure of 320 entries and so far figures are looking good to exceed this number,” said Mr Ruttledge.

All stages offer the option of a 50 mile or a 100 mile route. There is also the option to do 1, 2 or all 3 days as required. This year’s event starts on Saturday, May 31 with Stage One going from Tralee to Killarney. Stage Two on Sunday heads out west to Dingle and Stage Three will see the participants explore the North Kerry coastline.

Kieran Ruttledge said that Tralee Chamber Alliance members and the wider community in Tralee were being encouraged to get involved this weekend by spreading the word to those who may be cycling enthusiasts or by sharing the details on social media.

Volunteers will be welcome to help act as Event Marshalls and anyone interested in offering a few hours of their weekend, can contact Richard McElligott –
