Forget the Tour de Finea, the Giro D’Athboy and all those other ersatz events that clog up the cycling calendar! This is the real thing! The annual Into the West Cycle Challenge in aid of breast cancer research heads for Galway on Saturday and all those who are taking part should be ready for action when the riders will set off for the City of the Tribes.

It’s a great cycling event and helps to raise lots of cash for a very worthy cause. I really like the fact too that several newcomers to the club will be taking up the challenge and so let’s wish them well.

There will be five groups leaving from the Mullingar Park Hotel with the first group scheduled to depart at 9.00am. Sign on opens at 8.00am and all riders are asked to be there at least 45 minutes before their scheduled start. Organiser in chief, Joe Duffy tells me that he will be contacting everyone in the next few days with details of the trip.

Full report on the 2010 Into The West Challenge next week...
Strange things happen when you approach warp speed on the way to Galway !...
