Over two hundred cyclists, young and old, gathered in Castlebellingham for the 30km Sean Conlon memorial cycle in aid of The North Louth Hospice and The Gary Kelly Centre, on Saturday July 27.

The organisers of this charity cycle, now in its 5th year, were very pleased with the turnout and are confident of exceeding the amount raised last year for the two charities which do so much to help those affected by cancer in Co Louth.

The Bellingham Bikers were delighted with the support they received from the Cuchulainn Cycling Club in Dundalk and Dunleer's White River Wheelers, as well as all the individual cyclists who turned up to make the day such a great success.

They are also grateful to all those who helped provide refreshments after the cycle and organised kids activities on the Green, as well as everyone who sponsored prizes for the raffle which took place later in Byrne's Public House.

There is still time to contribute to the club's fund-raising efforts as they are holding a raffle for two All-Ireland tickets (choice between football or hurling). The draw will take place in Byrne's of Castlebellingham on Friday August 18.
