On Monday night (11th of March) the Grand Canal Wheelers Cycling club in Daingean launched the 2019 Peatlands tour.
The launch, held in the Sportsman Inn, had a great turnout and the committee were delighted to receive their first sponsorship for the event from Matt Corcoran from Midlands Veterinary.
Over the past 4 years the Peatlands Tour has raised over €12,000 for local charities and attracts cyclists from around the country.
This years’ Peatlands Tour is taking place on Saturday the 11th of May and is in aid of the Daingean Lourdes Fund and Daingean Community Childcare Services.
Entry is €20 and there are two routes available, either a 40km or 80km; all are welcome to participate.
