Ballymacarbry Cycling Event Launched By Sean Kelly!

And talking of launches, (see below, sorry lads terrible link) I last night attended the Ballymacarbry Community Centre where Sean Kelly, no less, made an appearance to support the Ballymac Cycle in aid of supporting the Irish Team at the 2011 Athens Special Olympics and the volunteers that are so crucial to making it all run smoothly. Local man Martin Moore is hoping to be amongst that number so cyclists from all over the region are urged to show their support for this worthy cause.

Sean agreed to endorse the ride as part of his ever successful Sean Kelly Series of events and being a cyclist of the highest stature, who has ridden so many times through this area it means a great deal to the event organisers. Well done that man!

The date is Sunday 29 May 2011 starting at 10:00 a.m and details of the route can be found here Ballymacarbry Cycle 96.52km, and if chosen the ever demanding Seskin Hill can be added for those that relish a test. The event would be a great way to kick off your Summer in the saddle!

Registration will be in the form of a 25 euro donation and can be paid here at the Special Olympics fundraising page, (anyone not entering can volunteer a donation from as little as 1 euro!) and of course for all you Social Networkers out there you can find out more on their FACEBOOK page.

Now spread the word and start spinning them wheels.

Helmets, for your safety, will be compulsory for this ride.

(Thanks to the catering team, much appreciated!)
