This is an event which takes place each year in July was on the 14th this year. There are courses of different lengths, with a Food Station at the coast Guard station in Goleen, and at the Fire Station in Bantry.

There was a record attendance of about 450 cyclists this year raising over €28,000 a magnificent effort.

Lion Francis and his wife Susy supported the Emergency Services in Goleen, and Lions Meg, Tom, Roger with his wife Sandy supporting the Emergency services in Bantry where they cooked Burgers and yet more burgers!!!

The Presentation by the Emergency Services took place at the Bantry Bay Hotel, details of the presentation can be found on their Facebook Page. They very kindly gave us a donation of €750 as a thank you for our support, not just for that on the day, but also for our help with their Street Collection which raised over €1,700.
