Rating: Rate this Event Now

Curadmir Ulster Cycle 2015 is Northern Ireland's premier cycling event. A fully supported multi-stage sportive covering 360 miles in Ulster, over three days from 11th - 13th September. 

Designed to be one of the toughest and most spectacular multi-stage events in the British Isles, Curadmir is a fully supported cycling sportive covering 360 miles in three days through some of the wildest and most remote terrain in Ulster.

Those brave enough to take on the challenge will be rewarded with the sight of Northern Ireland's most beautiful scenery; beginning with a 700m ascent of the Mourne Mountains, the route takes the iconic Giant's Causeway, Ireland's most northerly point at Malin Head, the infamous Mamore Cap with hairpin gradients of 27%, and the Fermanagh Mountains, where the final hilltop finish will overlook the stunning Lough Erne. 



Structure:
Curadmir takes the format of a three day rolling base camp sportive where completion rather than competition is the aim. Rider Villages will be set up across Ulster from which you will finish and depart each day. This is fully supported event, where all you need to bring is your bike, kit and sleeping bag. 

At the end of each stage the Rider Village will be awaiting you with the following all-inclusive comforts: 

  • Two-man pre-assembled waterproof tent (per rider) with self inflatable mattress 
  • Premium all you can eat catering 
  • High pressure hot showers with fresh towels 
  • Chill-out and dining marquee with live music, beanbags, couches etc 
  • Physio and massage tent 
  • Mechanics tent 
  • Baggage porters (part of a daily baggage forwarding service) 
  • Luxury loos, etc

Origins of the name:
Ulster has been stage to some of the greatest battles in the history of Ancient Ireland. Of these, perhaps the most epic are those involving the fight for the Champions Portion - the Curadmir ('kor-a-meér'.) At the ceremonial feasts only those warriors who displayed extraordinary courage were awarded the largest cut of meat at the table. There was no greater a prize for a mortal to receive, and these warriors were held up above the rest as the bravest in battle and forever immortalised in legend. 

The Curadmir Ulster Cycle has been inspired by these accounts of heroic bravery and as such, we have set out to deliver a challenge which is built around mental strength and fortitude where only the courageous will conquer.
