Leitrim Cycling Festival, 2018.

June 22 – June 24, 2018

We are at the early and giddy stages of planning a festival of cycling and hiking the wilds of Leitrim in the North West of Ireland.

Dates have been confirmed and venues booked. We’re planning some amazing routes and campout locations. A request for fine weather is pending…

The aim of the hike + bike festival is to celebrate Leitrim for its wonderful walking and cycling routes, to bring people together to learn about the future of hiking and cycling in the area, to build a community that can be involved in developing the area and to have some fun.
Its lining up to be a great weekend. There will be bikes, food, music, workshops, talks, hills, lakes, foraging, boreens, campout, bunting, maps, art, saddle-sores, tan-lines… aaaannnndddd ice-cream!

Keep an eye here for further details.

Below are a few tracks and roads to whet your appetite!

Stay tuned!

  3. Hi.
    This sounds like a super event! The very best of luck with the planning of it.
    Do give us a shout here in if you would like another speaker for one of your events. We are working away on normalising everyday cycling – both utility and recreational – and also love coming to festivals! We organise the bicycle space in the Global Green Area of the Electric Picnic every year. is the member for Ireland of the European Cyclists’ Federation so we are plugged into a lot of what is happening in the cycling space all across the globe – and happy to share lots of ideas on bicycle goings-on with you.

    Best wishes,
    Dr. Damien Ó Tuama,
    National Cycling Coordinator, – the Irish Cycling Advocacy Network
    and An Taisce – the National Trust for Ireland,
    The Tailor’s Hall, Back Lane, Dublin 8.
