The event is held annually to remember the local musician and keen cyclist who was 67 years old when he died as a result of smoke inhalation after fire at his home on Church Street, Blennerville, in January 2010.

The cycle will travel to Castleisland town centre and back home followed by refreshments, tea and coffee in Quanes Bar Blennerville.
