RevUp 2024

About RevUp

After a bit of time off due to the various lock downs and social distancing issues over the last two years, RevUp finally got back on the road in 2022! Starting as always from Joe Duffy Motorrad in Finglas, the sold out event saw 40+ riders and pillions complete an epic 3 days of riding on some of Irelands best biking roads. 2023 RevUp was an even bigger success and saw participants cover almost 1,200km as the beautiful West Cork played host to riders and support crew.

The 2024 run takes place may 4th - 6th and will be the 17th run since the event began.

The event works as a navigation exercise with the initial points to ride given out in Finglas at the start of the first day. You simply follow the route sheet and ride to the first checkpoint where you get the second set of directions and so on. This allows you to leave when you want and ride at the pace you enjoy and in a group you’re happy to ride with.

Participants have to raise a minimum of €750 (and €500 for a pillion) and that includes the following: 

  • 1,000km mapped and scouted routes
  • Luggage transfers to/from start/finish points
  •  Two nights accommodation in a four star hotel (breakfasts & dinners included) 
  • Breakdown & recovery services for the weekend 
  • Full support for the 3 days from Team RevUp

The run is always well attended and 2024 looks like it will be no different. Registration is open now and is limited to 40 bikes with or without pillions. The route is always kept a closely guarded secret with the details of how to get to the first checkpoint being given out at the dealership on the morning. At the first checkpoint details of the route to the second are given out and at the second the final stage which gets us to the hotel is supplied.

We're very much looking forward to getting on the road again and we're hoping you'll join us!
