The Conor Pass situated on the Dingle Peninsula is probably one of the most famous and difficult climbs for cyclists in Ireland. It is quite steep and has no inch of forgiving tarmac. Only approx 3 miles and 5K in length, doesn’t look that far in paper but looking at the gradient will give you more of an idea what is involved. A magnificient view of both Tralee Bay and Dingle Bay await you on top and only a few meters apart.

Cycled this three times in 2009 and this climb never gets easier. It is cautionable with this climb that the roads can get quite narrow near the summit so be very aware of surrounding traffic. Also it can be quite windy on the summit even if it is not apparently windy before and during the climb, it is not a climb for deep section wheels on windy wheels, I speak from experience!
