The Great Lake Spin

A 200km Permanent in Clare.

Organiser: James Skehan


Phone: 087 2061418

Entry Fee: €5 by PayPal to and Cycling Ireland Licence required, no One-days allowed.

The Great Lake Spin is a permanent / non-calendar event that is an excuse for randonneurs living in the Bridgetown / Sixmilebridge areas to get their monthly permanent spins done, in a reasonable time, without upsetting their wives and collect a nice RRTY medal in the process.

As it is a permanent, start point can be anywhere along the route but I have shown Bridgetown as the start point on the GPS map.

There is only 1407m of climbing on this route – so will it be a day for the breakaway or maybe the peloton will time it perfectly for a bunch sprint?

Plenty options for food on the route:

Killaloe, Ardnacrusha, Annacotty, Birdhill, Portumna, Scariff, Tuamgraney and Sixmilebridge

Proof of passage can be a Strava Link, RWGPS Link or any GPS file.

If GPS is unavailable, “bikies” taken at Birdhill, Portumna, Tuamgraney and Sixmilebridge will be accepted. 

Ride with GPS Map:

Please complete the Permanent Entry Form and send it to the above e-mail address in advance of your ride.

The usual proof of passage is required, Photo or Receipt at Controls, or GPS Track.
