The annual Castleisland Day Care cycle
The annual Day Care cycle is taking place on Sunday the 4th of September at 10 am sharp from the Castleisland Rugby Club.
It is the usual route which incorporates 10, 30 and 50 mile options that participants can decide on the day which one they wish to do. Minimum sponsorship or entry fee is 20 euro. Under 18s need to have parental /guardian permission to take part. We need to stress this year more so than other years that the event is not a race. There are numerous races coming up and there has been loads on during the year but this is not one of them as it not organised on the basis that people will be racing. This is primarily due to safety issues but it is also a day that people need to be encouraged along as there will be many new cyclists on the road for the event. If you feel that the event is too slow for you then you need to realise this now and we are asking you to use the day to cycle with others and encourage them along to finish the cycle which in itself is the achievement of the day in question. Sign on for the event is from 9 to 9.45 on the morning and refreshments will be provided on the route and at the finish where there will be entertainment provided. There is also a raffle for all sponsorships handed in at the start and various spot prizes. A new addition this year is a 5km walk starting 12.30pm with registration from 12 noon. Again minimum sponsorship or entry is 20 euro and it is hoped that people that would maybe not cycle would walk for this very worthy and local cause. We are looking forward to seeing you all on September 4th for an enjoyable and active day.
