  • A work with Liam Loughman A word with Liam Loughman. When did you first get into Cycling? I bought a bike through the “Bike to Work” scheme about 8 years ago. I was never really up on a bike until then and I decided that having played football all my life, it would be a great way of keeping fit. I remember the very first Sunday morning, cycling into town in my shiny new bike to buy the newspapers. At Nugent’s corner, on the way back out to Gaybrook, I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a large plate glass window and to me it was like a scene from “One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. There was I thinking I’d ...

I was always on my bike when I was a kid. Then as I got older my life consisted of playing football for Milltown, working abroad for a while, pubbing and clubbing, getting married and having two kids.At the age of 42 a mate at work suggested we buy a couple of bikes on the Bike to Work scheme and do the Sligo Spin to raise money for the Westmeath Hospice. We trained like devils and completed the spin to Sligo and back. I absolutely loved it and loved being back ...
