Pedal for Port Láirge in the European Cycling Challenge

Sign up and pedal Waterford to the top of the European leaderboard!

The European Cycling Challenge – ECC2017 is a urban cyclists’ team competition. It takes place from 1 to 31 May 2017. It is a challenge among European cities: the City that “rides” the longest total distance wins!  We’re competing for the top spot against 50 other European Regions to see who will earn the Yellow Jersey.

So what do you need to do?
Simply sign up, log your trips during May, and let’s get cycling in Waterford noticed. It doesn’t matter whether you cycle just 5km, or 500kms over the next month, every km counts! The goal is to get out and just enjoy the cycling you do.
