Charity Cycle: Cliona’s Foundation Cycle, now in its Sixth year will take place on Saturday August 31 from the Honeyfitz Theatre in Lough Gur, just 20km from Limerick city.

With three routes including an 8km for family and funsters, the organisers have appealed to experienced cyclists with a challenging 90km route and a 40km less arduous route for leisure cyclists. Following the cycle there’s a BBQ, face painting, music and a bouncy castle to keep the entire family entertained.

So popular is cycling that Cliona’s Foundation has founded its own cycling club which is affiliated to Cycling Ireland and is gaining new members each week. Cliona’s Foundation Sixth Annual Charity Cycle was launched in Limerick last weekend by three well known celebrities who were delighted to be part of the event. David Wallace, Leanne Moore and Joy Neville have carved national and international fame in their own right and have supported Cliona’s Foundation over the years.

Family Cycle starts at 9.45 a.m., Experienced Cycle starts at 10am & Leisure Cycle starts at 10.30 a.m. Entry is €30 for the Experienced and Leisure Cycles and €25 for the Family Cycle.
