NAMES are still being taken for the second annual LK (Limerick/kerry) Charity Cycle which will take place this Sunday, April 29.
Organised by newly formed Athea Charity Cycle Club, the event will offer riders two routes - the 60km Athea Loop from Athea to Shanagolden, Glin, Tarbert, Moyvane and back o Athea, or the longer 115km 'Coastal Route' which will see participants leave the other riders in Tarbert and head for Ballylongford, Ballybunion, Listowel, Abbeyfeale and back to Athea.
Funds raised from this year's cycle will once again go to the Brothers of Charity, with the proceeds being split between the Listowel and Newcastle West branches.
Yvonne O'connor, who is part of the Athea Charity Cycle Club says that those involved are hoping to attract hundreds of riders to tae part this year. Plenty training is advisable, however, given the length of the routes,
"Of course there will be plenty of help available for riders on the day, but we'd advise people to get training as soon as possible, no matter which route they plan to take."
Yvonne explained that unlike similar events, riders have to fill up sponsorship cards in the run up to the event, but will simply be asked to pay a €30 registration fee to take part. This can either be done on the day of the cycle or by pre-registering at www.lkcharitycycle.com.
