Charity Cycle Event

One of our club members organised a very worthwhile cycle in the West of Ireland (the Loop Head Cycle) in aid of a very prominent & noble charity in Ireland, The Peter McVerry Trust (PMVT), who support the homeless in Dublin city and other cities and towns across Ireland.

On Saturday, 10 November 2019, 27 cyclists braved the wet and windy weather and cycled 100km in honour for the PMVT. If you wish to donate you can do so in the following link:
