Drogheda Wheelers Vice-chairman Bernard Maguaire is organising and hosting an upcoming charity cycle Rás Cabhrú.  Cyclists will have a choice of two distances the 100km and 50km cycle.  The routes will start at Drogheda port at the North Quay gate and take the coastal route, then on to Ardee and will finish back in Drogheda.

The charity cycle will begin at 10:00 (registration is at 09:00) outside the main port gates on North Quay.  The estimated finishing time is 15:00.  Participants can choose which route they will cycle, be it the 100km or 50km route.  The cycle is open to everyone over the age of 18 and is a leisure event. This means that there's no experience necessary, just have your own gear, bike and water for the charity cycle.

The cycle is open to a maximum of 300 participants.  The application fee is €25 per person, this fee includes a goodie bag and refreshments at the end of the cycle.

Cyclists registered with a cycling club will already have insurance cover.  For non-club cyclists an additional fee of approximately 60 cent will be applied on the morning of the event upon registration.  On the morning of the event there will be stalls present in the area.  Simply go to these stalls and register along with your fee of €25.  For non-club members your fee will be €25.60 which includes insurance.

This event is a cycling Ireland approved event.  The cycle will also be fully marshalled.  This year’s proceeds will go to Drogheda Homeless Aid.
