Neil wins first race at Currow in county Kerry. Delighted of course that I am to say that he rode a brilliant race. Seven laps of a 6.5KM circuit and at the end of lap two going up the drag to the finish line he decided to go for a break. He fully expected the lads to catch him up again but he got away with it. Five laps alone with his break fluctuating between 45 and 15 seconds. At the finish line I guess he had 20 seconds. Some of the lads in Kanturk cycling club did a good job of looking after the bunch which certainly helped him to retain his lead. DELIGHTED… 45KM Race at Average of 37KMH
Beara Charity Cycle July 2015. The Beara Charity Cycle has had a change of circuit and a change of date. The new circuit allows for people to see the old Beara Road from Eyeries around the coast to Ardgroom. The date change is due to the clash with the Kenmare cycle weekend.

Beara Charity Cycle July 2015
The new circuit is basically two loops, the first loop is the longest at 69 KM and goes from Castletownbere to Allihies and on to Urhan and Eyeries. From there the Ring of Beara is followed along the coastal road towards Kilcatherine and on to Ardgroom. Then back to Town which makes for a circuit of 69 KM.
Back in town for a cup of tea and then the loop from town to Adrigole over the Healey Pass into Lauragh and back via the Festival of Eyeries. It is great to be able to stop in Eyeries for some refreshments and support their village festival. The second circuit is 53KM. So total is 122KM these distances are approximates.
