The Event

An Irish Gravel Cycling Festival

Rebellion Gravel is a two-day gravel stage race and ride which takes riders on some of the best gravel in Ireland. 

There will be 3 categories:

1. Race

Does exactly what it says, there will be a 80km race on Saturday and a 50km Race on Sunday.

Its timed from start to finish, with neutralised zones on roads to ensure the safety of everyone

2. Ride

The ride is a more leisurely cycle following the same route as the Race.

There is food stops and plenty time to capture those selfies.

3. Try

The try follows the same format as the Ride, but a shorter distance each day.

If you are new to gravel cycling and want to find out what its all about, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

Get ready to embark on the ultimate Gravel Cycle – Introducing Rebellion Gravel – Two days of pure cycling bliss amidst the stunning landscapes of BallyvourneY, Co Cork.


Race it, Ride it or simply try it, we have routes for all levels of gravel cyclists. Whether you are a seasoned gravel grinder or a newbie eager to explore, Rebellion Gravel is for you!
