Following the success of last year’s inaugural Tear Through East Clare cycle it has been decided that the event return for a second year.
This year’s cycle will take place on Saturday September 17th and will offer a choice of three routes. All routes will start and finish at the Kilkishen Cultural Centre. The 90K route will take riders through Broadford, Bridgetown, Killaloe, Ogonnelloe, Tuamgraney Scariff, Caher and Tulla while the 40K route will take riders though Broadford and Bodyke returning via Tulla. This year sees the introduction of a family fun 10K cycle with further details on this event to be announced in the coming weeks.
Further information, including detailed route maps and online registration is now available on www.kilkishen.com. Funds raised from this cycle will support the fundraising efforts for the Kilkishen Cultural Centre. The centre was part-funded by the LEADER programme, through the National Development Plan and by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. However, a debt of €27,000 remains and the committee are currently working to reduce this.
