Chase the Sun 2023, an epic challenge for the adventurous cyclist!
Ride across Ireland on mid-summer’s day, together in a relay team or as a solo participant. Riders will tackle 200+ miles of sweeping coastal cliffs, mythical glens, loughs, and ancient cairns, experience the heritage and spectacle of the majestic Irish landscapes which await participants in this year’s Chase the Sun event.
Chase the Sun is a road bike cycling event and was organised for the first time across Northern Ireland & Ireland in 2022. The 2023 edition of Chase the Sun will take place on Saturday 24th June.
Riders start at sunrise at the historic Titanic docks in Belfast and proceed up the dramatic coastal road through the Antrim Glens before heading inland to traverse forests, mountains, and loughs.
Participants will explore the mythical landscapes and landmarks of the ’Emerald Isle’. The route crosses the border of Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland finishing after 209 miles at sunset on the Atlantic beaches of Enniscrone.
Chase The Sun is a simple idea, with a unique philosophy. The challenge: ride across the country in one day, always on the Saturday closest to the summer solstice. Coast to coast, East to West, sunrise to sunset. Originally conceived by a keen yet average cyclist Olly in 2008, the concept is unique: a longest day adventure on two wheels, an annual physical, navigational and motivational challenge, this event is a ride, not a race, it is a collective endeavour shared by a community of cyclists inspired in pursuit of a common goal.
With over 3,600m of elevation, riders can take on the Irish event solo or as part of a relay team, will you chase the sun in 2023?
