The Pan Celtic is a self-supported, ultra-endurance bicycle ride, journeying through the Celtic Nations of Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Brittany. A different route each year tackling stunning terrain and landscapes steeped in Celtic tradition.

On the 3rd of July 2022, the Pan Celtic Clan gathered once again to embark on an Irish adventure that would see them line up in South-West Wales, ready to embark on a two-wheeled adventure venturing over to Ireland and its famed Wild Atlantic Way. The finish would have them crossing back into North Wales and finishing in the seaside town of Llandudno.

An eclectic company of folk from all walks of life, the Pan Celtic Clan is brought together by their shared love of cycling, exploits and kinship. This is their story of triumph over adversity; of setbacks and failings; and ultimately the lifelong bond that can only come through shared experiences. The this is the story of the Pan Celtic Clan.
