Cycle the Ring of Kerry

For those who didn’t manage to make it down for the main event in early July some of the club members are organising a weekend away to Killarney to take in the Ring of Kerry.

This will take place on the weekend of September 13th 2014. If numbers are good a bus will be arranged to take participants down on the Friday night. Cycle the Ring on Saturday and return home on Sunday.

For the hardcore, Niall is organising to cycle down on the Friday.

In order to figure out hotel costs etc. let Sandra know if you are interested so we know the likely numbers. Call or text on 086 8506201.
