Marble City Cyclers are delighted to announce that they will be hosting the Ninth edition of the Tour de Kilkenny on the Saturday of the Bank Holiday weekend, 5th August 2017. In the last eight  years, Tour de Kilkenny has raised over €100,000 for charity and we hope that with your help, we can raise even more funds .

As Tour de Kilkenny is now running a 20km, 70km, 120km and 160km route, there is a route to cater for cyclist of all abilities meaning this is a great day out for the family, a group of friends or work colleagues.  Or why not make a weekend out of it and enjoy the famous nightlife and hospitalities that Kilkenny city has to offer.

All four routes will be leaving the Kilkenny Rugby Club, with the 160km & 120km participants leaving together at 9am and the 70km participants leaving at 11am.  The family 20km will leave at 11:30am. Sign-on (which is obligatory, even for those who registered online) is opened at the Kilkenny Rugby Club from 7pm to 9pm on the night before the cycle (Friday evening, 4th August 2017) and on the morning of the cycle – from 7:30 am to 8:40am for 160km & 120km participants and until 10:45am for 70km & 20km participants.

Tour de Kilkenny is also on just 4 weeks before the (slightly!) more famous Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford, making it ideal preparation for those of you thinking of participating in this.

 The Bikedoctor will be available on the morning before the Tour de Kilkenny start in case anyone needs any last minute repairs or needs any supplies. Or have a mechanical assistance out on the road on the day and will try and help anyone who is unlucky enough to have any mechanical issues.
