RNLI Lough Derg Charity Cycle 2023 - Lap the Lake

We are excited to announce our 2nd annual RNLI Lough Derg Charity Cycle.

This year cyclists can choose between a 120km or a 65km route.

The longer route will take you on a full circuit of Lough Derg giving participants the chance to cycle through three counties, Tipperary, Clare and Galway.

The shorter route will take you just beyond Killaloe to a turnaround point at Twomilegate lakeside amenity park.

The scenery along the way is unparalleled and gives participants a chance to appreciate the beauty of the River Shannon.

There is one big climb up Portroe hill to challenge you but it is short and sweet and before you know it you will be flying down the other side.

After your break in Portumna the route becomes undulating, providing plenty of small hills to keep you working hard right up to the last kilometre.

On your return to the Lifeboat Station at Lough Derg Yacht Club in Dromineer you can relax and enjoy some food and some well-earned drinks.


Registration will take place at Lough Derg Yacht Club on:

  • Friday 5th May 17.30 – 19.30
  • Saturday 6th May 06.30 – 8.00

Facilities on route

On both routes food, water and toilet facilities will be located as follows:

  • 120km – Dromineer, Twomilegate, Mountshannon, Portumna, Terryglass
  • 65km – Dromineer, Twomilegate lakeside amenity park (turnaround point)

Ticket prices

Tickets are €65 for the 120km route and €50 for the 65km route and will include a goody bag & a T-Shirt.

Please note; No refunds will be given unless the event is cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.
