First up were the 38 Junior members followed by the Women in Sport members, the Novices and the rest of the regular club members. All in all, we ended up with 49 teams of three, which meant that not only did we go around Ireland once, nor twice but we came close to three times with some members even doing some extra kms for good measure. The final total came in at 8,030kms cycled. As a result, the club has raised close to €5,500 on their GoFundMe.com page, “Roar for Ruairi – Cycle Around Ireland”
The spirit of the weekend was set by our juniors. From Sophia & Chelsey Howlett leading us out on Friday to Milo Kearney taking to the roads on his balance bike, we have seen determination and support for Ruairi from all our juniors who inspired the adults. Each junior will receive a medal from the club in the coming days in recognition of their leadership.
