120 cyclists saddle up for Donegal Cancer Bus 16.05.17

INISHOWEN Cycling Club (Inish CC) hosted their annual charity cycle in aid of the Donegal Cancer Bus helped along with glorious sunshine on Sunday, May 7, 2017. A fantastic 3,500 has so far been raised from the cycle.
Departing from Moville FC., at 9.30am, many cyclists opted for the Inish 60 mile route which is less demanding but still a fair spin.

The challenging Inish 100 mile route was also popular with locals and visitors to the peninsula. The day proved to be a huge success in spite of several punctures and the odd spot of sunburn for some.
A spokesperson said the success was due to a "great team" who supported Inish CC in many ways throughout the day.
"Thanks to Supervalu Buncrana and the Ballyliffen Hotel who facilitated our water/food stops. As did Philomena O'Brien at the Wee Hall , Culdaff. Paddy Gillespie ,Ross Donaghey and Paddy Harkin supported the cyclists from the comfort of their motorbikes, a much needed role.
"To all who sponsored refreshments especially Valerie at Caiseal Mara Hotel, Canny & Doherty Supervalu, and Eamonn Gillen & Sons , thank you.
