There are limited spaces remaining for The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, which will take place on Saturday, 7th July 2018. The cycle, which this year celebrates 35 years as Ireland’s largest one-day charity fundraising event, is expected to see 10,000 recreational cyclists take part.
Over the past 35 years, the cycle has raised almost €15 million for 150 charity organisations, through the annual support of participating cyclists and volunteers. Aside from some essential costs to run the 180km Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, all funds raised go directly to carefully selected charity organisations.
To date, funds raised from The Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle have benefited many support services, such as Down Syndrome Ireland, Enable Ireland, the Irish Kidney Association, Breakthrough Cancer Research, the Kerry Hospice Foundation, Pieta House, St Joseph’s Home in Killorglin, and many more.
To celebrate ŠKODA and Liam Lynch Motors sixth consecutive year partnering with the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, they have announced some special activities to support cyclists before and after the infamous 180km cycle.
On the evening of Friday, 6th July, at the cyclist registration event, ŠKODA and Liam Lynch Motors will have two courtesy bike mechanics on stand-by, for any last minute repairs that participants may require, to ensure that participants’ bikes are readily prepared for the 180km challenge.
In addition to that, ŠKODA will have an array of high quality cycling apparel for sale, including shorts, jerseys and rain gear at a special discount rate.
After completing the trek, ŠKODA and Liam Lynch Motors will offer participants courtesy massages, via six specialist sports massage therapists, who will be on hand to take care of any post-cycle strains and aches.
Speaking about the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, Liam Lynch of Liam Lynch Motors said:
“We have a great tradition of welcoming guests to our wonderful county and we’ll be doing just that, as thousands descend on Kerry, for this event, in July. There has been a great response to the cycle yet again this year, but I would urge people to register for the last remaining spaces, as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment. It’s a great day out and the event raises much-needed funding for many great causes. As a special thank you to all event participants, we are delighted to offer some additional services, to make the challenge a little easier and we look forward to welcoming those taking part, to our showroom.”
