IT’S always a well-supported event and organisers are hoping cyclists turn out in their droves for the 15th annual Fenit Lifeboat charity fun cycle.

The 50 kilometre cycle takes place on Saturday May 13 and will see cyclists make their way from Tralee through Farranfore and on to Castleisland before looping back into the county capital.

The event will start and finish at O’Donnell’s Bar in Mounthawk.

Registration for the cycle will take place at O’Donnells from 9.15am to 10.15am that morning with a minimum entry fee of €40. The cycle is due to get underway at 10.30am.

All funds raised form the event will go directly to support the Fenit Lifeboat service. Lifeboat T-Shirts will be presented to all participants and O’Donnells will provide refreshments after the cycle.

“Fenit RNLI volunteer crew members are willing to drop everything to go and save lives at sea when their pagers beep,” said Fenit Lifeboat Chairman Mike O’Connor.

“We are extremely grateful to our crew and our RNLI supporters who contribute financially at events such as this to help us deliver that service to any person who may need it. This is an opportunity to support this essential service which relies almost entirely on contributions from the public. You can help by taking part or by sponsoring one of the cyclists or making a contribution on the day.” For entry forms or more information call Phyl on 087-6810368.
