'Ride Wild' awarded Route Ambassador Status
Ride Wild are delighted to announce the awarding of Route Ambassador status to our Cycling Director Michael O’Boyle, and the team at ridewild.ie. The award has come from US Route Mapping specialists, Ride with GPS, and Ride Wild are now the first and only Irish company to receive this coveted recognition.

Ride with GPS, founded in 2006 and based in Oregan, provide one of the world’s best route mapping tools for cyclists all across the globe, and the Route Ambassador status is only awarded to companies who demonstrate a deep knowledge of cycling, cycling routes, and of their location. They must also demonstrate a unique understanding of everything that is required to deliver a unique Cycling experience.

The award means that our routes along the Wild Atlantic Way are featured on their worldwide route mapping website, and we will be the first and only Ride with GPS ambassadors in Ireland. Below is a link to our routes as they appear on the Ride with GPS website, and as you will see it is incredibly detailed in regard to the area along the Wild Atlantic Way, and the promotion of local visitor attractions, hotels, activities and history.

This website is used by thousands of cyclists worldwide when looking to choose a destination for their Cycling holidays, and both Ride Wild and Ride with GPS believe having a Route Ambassador in Ireland will significantly improve the Cycling experience and tourism figures over the coming years
Ride Wild is an Irish based company - www.ridewild.ie - who specialize in providing innovative and exciting Cycling itineraries along the Wild Atlantic Way, and also into regions of Ireland’s Ancient East.
