THE weather was fantastic for the annual Ardfert Annual Cycleon Sunday in aid of Ardfert  School Building Fund.

The cycle provided the perfect opportunity for those preparing for the Ring of Beara / Ring of Kerry / Ring of Clare / Wild Atlantic Mizen  events later in the summer and it was enjoyed by nearly over 80 competitors.

It is an ideal opportunity for all, from the cycling enthusiast to the first timer, to take part in the event.

Cyclist were treated to a delicious BBQ on their return to the school and all were thrilled with the day’s event and the challenges it provided.

To cap it off, all participants were entered into a raffle and four lucky cyclists were drawn and won prizes.

All agreed after it was a fantastic event with  particular mentions for the help, support and encouragement of the marshals on the route adding to the enjoyment of the day.

It was a great achievement by all who took part, and the organisers would like to thank all participants, sponsors, An Garda, Civil Defence, and all volunteers who helped with the event.

The event again raised much needed funds for the school. Principal Betty Stack said she was delighted with this event and is already looking forward to next year’s cycle.
