Established in 1982, the Wicklow 200 is Ireland’s premier cycling sportive. The 39th edition will take place on Sunday the 9th August 2020 starting in Bray, Co Wicklow.
The Wicklow 200 – and its partner event the Wicklow 100 Challenge, take in many of the most iconic climbs in Ireland’s ‘Garden County’ in an event that is among the most arduous and most revered annual cycling events on the world calendar.
The ride takes place every June and attracts cyclists from many different countries. As the name suggests, the event covers over 200 kilometres around Co. Wicklow, a major international cycling destination.
The shorter Wicklow 100 Challenge takes place on the same day, and shares most of its route with the Wicklow 200.
The event is organised by the Irish Veteran Cyclists Association.
