Spring is here, officially at least, so it's only natural that the sportive of the same same might come to mind. So just as well that the Spring Spin organising committee has just announced the launch of the 2013 and sixth edition of this very popular event. Yes, once again it‘s time to start thinking about the Spring Spin to Sligo.

Kevin, Paraic and John Shaw launch Spring Spin cycles
Speaking recently to event director Paraic Devine, he confirmed that this year he will be sticking to last year's successful formula, that is that the events will take place on consecutive weekends with the Family Cycle taking place over a 20km route from the Downs GAA club on Sunday April 14th commencing at 2pm with sign-on open from 1pm. The following weekend, Saturday April 20th and Sunday 21st April, the round trip to Sligo will take place. Full details are available on the event website or if you prefer the personal touch, contact Pairic on 087 9324752 or Kevin on 087 2801330.

Once again this is a fund raiser for North Westmeath Hospice Homecare Foundation. As always, all the funds raised go directly to this very worthy cause. Entry for the Sligo Cycle is now open and limited to the first 120 applications received. Application forms are avaialble from Paraic and Kevin or you can download them from the Spring Spins website
