Cycling club’s charity outing
DINGLE Cycling Club will hold its annual charity cycle on Saturday, May 5, with the proceeds of the event going once again to Camphill Dingle, and also to Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne and other deserving causes.
The cycle, which coincides with Feile na Bealtaine, will start from the Pobalscoil at 9am, travelling to Camp via Lispole and Annascaul and returning to Dingle via The Conor Pass.
Participants will then have a short break at the Pobalscoil before continuing via Ventry to Slea Head, Ballyferriter, Cuas and back to Dingle.
The total distance is 120km but those who are less fit have the option of the 55km ‘Slea Head Challenge’, which starts shortly after the main event.
Participants must register for the cycle and this can be done online at: https://register. DinglePeninsulaCyclingChallenge2018. The early booking cost is €15 for students; €20 for members of Cycling Ireland and €25 for non-members. There’s a small additional online transaction fee.
