4 events for... cyclists who love the great outdoors

Bike coast to coast or explore the Wicklow Mountains, and all for a good cause.

IF YOU’RE RARELY seen without your helmet and high-vis and favour two wheels over four, why not take your usual routine up a notch and participate in a cycle for charity?
