Causeway CC Team Up with the Caring Caretaker
Following the creation of this new all-inclusive cycling club in January of this year the club has went from strength to strength and now boasts a membership well in excess of 60. One of the main reasons for the creation of the club was charity fundraising and this is where the partnership with Davy Boyle and the continuing links with Coleraine Blind Centre are so important.
This year’s Caring Caretaker Cycle Challenge event has two separate routes one (50 miles) for aspiring cyclists, and the other (15 miles) is ideal for families and everyone who is willing to participate. This event takes place on Sunday 12 May and registration is from 8:30am -9:30am, with the start at 10am sharp.
