Good turnout for Tour of Strangford

admin   September 15, 2019   Comments Off on Good turnout for Tour of Strangford

The weather forecast wasn’t great, but over 100 riders signed on for the Tour of Strangford, and were rewarded with a calm, warm, and mainly dry day.


The club was raising money for two charities this year – Chest Heart and Stroke NI and Parkinson’s NI. We’ll have more details about the total amount raised later.

Many thanks to our sponsors –  FK Lowry, Gallagher and BMG Accountants, who helped cover the costs.

Early finishers discuss the relative merits of the 50 and 80 mile routes.

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to organise and run this great and very worthwhile event, including course designers, road markers, entry, sign-on, broom wagon, and refreshments. You helped make it a smooth and enjoyable day out.
