Team Joe Barr is a World Endurance Cycling team with many different commercial threads. Most interesting for this audience would be our Race Series.
After racing all over the world, we decided to bring the world to race with us on home roads.
In 2018 we established the Race Joe Barr endurance cycling series. Our race headquarters are located in the White Horse Hotel in Campsie and competitors from home and abroad can come with their teams and race endurance distances of 200-miles, 330-miles and 500-miles through the Sperrins, Donegal, The Causeway Coast, etc.
We’ve had entries from the US, from Europe and from all over Ireland. It’s growing year over year and we anticipate 2021 to be our best year ever.
The Joe Barr 500 is now a World Cup event and a Race Across America qualifier. Our home roads are gaining a reputation amongst the global cycling community as being both the toughest and most beautiful mile for mile.
Why we recommend Derry as a place to live, work & learn:
As a sports person Derry provides an inviting landscape of work- life balance. It’s rare to find such a landscape on your doorstep no matter where you live. You can be in from work and out the door training in a matter of minutes.
