Beara Charity Cycle 2016

Beara Charity Cycle 2016 has been announced for the 16th of July. What makes the Beara Charity Cycle so great is that it is organised fully by volunteers and is a non profit event, all of the money made by the participants paying their 50€ to take part goes to four local charities.

This is the sixth year that the event is being held and over the years this event has succeeded in raising 65000€ for local charities. The participants always have a great time and the routes are spectacular.

Watch a short video here of route two which shows some of the spectacular scenery.

Been a month since my last film as I was so upset about what happened to one of my films.
