Lakeside Wheelers Cycle With Mayo Ultras

Last Friday was the sixth and final day of an epic undertaking cycling through the 32 counties in just six days for a dedicated group of cyclists from Mayo who go by the name Mayo Ultra Cyclists. They completed 1900 kilometres in the six days thus averaging almost 320 Km per day all to raise money for four charities. 

Needless to say any help they got along the way was appreciated and so on Tuesday evening last as the group made their way out of Tullamore and into Kilbeggan they were met by a group of Wheelers who rode the last 20 Km of day with the Ultras. The evening itself was balmy and we had a nice chat bit of banter with Mayo men who were delighted to have some new faces in the group after their long day in the saddle. By long I mean these men were on the road by 06.00 - 06.30 am every day and we met them around 8.15 pm getting into Mullingar as it was getting dark.

The usual debriefing and social media pieces were done by the lads before the whole lot of us were very well looked after by the crew in O'Brien's Centra. Many thanks to John and Edel Farrell for organising and hosting the evening.
