Day Care Cycle 2014

The last promotion for the club in 2014 is the day care leisure cycle on September 7th. Same route as last year which is from Castleisland to Currow onto Davy Roches cross and back to Castleisland which is where the 10 mile route finishes.

Then the 50 mile route continues to Ballycarthy, onto Farranfore, Scartaglin and again back to Castleisland

As usual the entry fee / minimum sponsorship is 20 euro. Sponsorship cards are available from Murphys Sports Castleisland, O’Sullivans Centra Currow or from the Day Care Centre itself.

This event is a spin to finish off the season with – maybe for some its a taster for future events in 2015 and for others the chance for a final event of the season. Remember it is not a race and is to be enjoyed with the aim of getting around safely.

Bad weather conditions meant there was a small turnout for the 2014 Sliabh Luachra TT. In the men’s category, Tralee BC rider Cathal Moynihan had a convincing victory, followed by TomBarrett and DanO’Brien in 2nd and 3rd place respectively. The men’s category may have had a different appearance had Jerry McCarthy not had an unfortunate accident and we wish him a speedy
recovery.

Suzanne O’Sullivan of Currow CC picked up the women’s prize for the host club from Helen Barrett of iBike..
