Now that the season of spring is upon us, it is time once again for your first challenge of 2011. Yes folks, it‘s time for the Spring Spin to Sligo. Event director Pairic Devine has asked me to mention that this year there are two consecutive weekends of cycling with the Family Spin taking place over a 20km route from the Downs GAA club on April 10th commencing at 2pm with sign-on open from 1pm.

The following weekend the round trip to Sligo over two days will be held on April 16th and 17th so why not make this part of your training for the previously mentioned challenge?

Full details can be got the on the event website or if you prefer the personal touch, contact Pairic on 087 9324752 or alternatively, call Kevin on 087 2801330.

Once again this is a fund raiser for the very worthy cause of the North Westmeath Hospice Foundation so if you are lucky enough to be hale and hearty why not give this a Spin. Entry is limited to the first 120 who give the required deposit of 60 euro which covers, evening meal, B+B and a top quality commemorative cycling jersey.
