The Pink Ribbon Tour, formally ‘Race The Rás’ is a three day cycling sportive in aid of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.
Due to COVID restrictions the event had to adapt, hence the ‘All Ireland Cycle’ has been created as an alternative event while keeping the challenge of The Pink Ribbon Tour.
It’s the brain child of a group of sports enthusiasts including some well-known former stars. Paul Earley, Roscommon GAA All Star and International Rules team manager 2013/14, Philip Cassidy two time winner of the Rás and physiotherapist Eamonn O’Muircheartaigh are some of the driving forces behind this exciting event on the cycle touring calendar.
Between 2011 and 2017 many of the organisers were involved in the charity cycle ‘Race The Rás’ but switched to a less competitive formula with an end of season date, and changing from an eight day to a three day event leaves it more accessible for a greater number of riders to take on a good end of summer challenge.
We hope you will join us in the new ‘All Ireland Cycle’ and perhaps help lead your county or cycling club to All Ireland Glory!
