CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Wicklow Gap West

Ride 8.6 kilometers gaining 413 meters at 4.8% average grade.

Similar in grade and scenery to her Eastern cousin, the Western route to Wicklow Gap begins at a nondescript point far from any major towns. Traffic was steady on the day that I rode in early June, but all traffic passed cautiously. There were a number of other cyclists out here and this is clearly a top cycling destination within Ireland. At the saddle of the climb, you’ll turn right onto the access road. Here, gradients will pick up a bit and you’ll enjoy clear views of the barren tundra-looking Irish landscape. If you’re driving to the climb, there is a convenient and safe lot at the saddle of the pass frequented by hikers and cyclists.

Bridge over the River Annalaka at km 2.6

Finish the climb at Wicklow Gap.

Road to the highest point by bike available on the Wicklow Gap ride.

The summit of our climb ends at the saddle of the pass, but if you’re in the mood for a challenge - turn right onto the gated  access road and ride another 3 kilometers at 6.4% to the tippy top which is adjacent to an old quarry.

That’s a Wrap!!
