The event will start from Neptune’s Killarney town Hostel on Sat 18th June 2022.

The official start time is 6am. In common with other events, riders continue through the three days at a pace and time of their choosing and having regard for their own well-being and safety.

There is no official support vehicle, mechanical help or otherwise available. A limited number of spares, such as tyres, tubes and lights will be available to purchase at the event HQ. However, in keeping with the true spirit of Audax Ireland, we will do everything we can, to make Mile Failte 22, a successful and enjoyable event for all our riders.

There will be no support vehicles provided by the organisers. Many of the roads are narrow so the use and especially parking of support vehicles is considered an unwelcome hazard. Where a rider is unable to finish, the organisers will endeavour as far as practical, to arrange that they be rescued at the rider’s cost. Private support vehicles are allowed only in the case of an emergency.

Riders must ensure that their bikes are in an excellent repair and capable of completing a 1,200-kilometre event. They must obey the rules of the road at all times and must not endanger other cyclists or road users during the event. Night riding will be a feature of the event, so all bikes must have working front and rear light and backup lights at all times.

The wearing of a helmet is recommended but not compulsory.

The wearing of Hi-Viz (reflective) jackets during the hours of darkness will be compulsory.
