Bann Valley Road Club Sportive on Sunday the 17th

BVRC - Marie Curie flyer[whohit]BVRC Sportive[/whohit]Our friends (we always write this in the hope they’ll reciprocate our love) in Bann Valley Road Club are hosting a charity sportive this Sunday – August the 17th.

It costs *£10 each, is of the ‘pay on the day’ variety and *100% of the money taken goes directly to Marie Curie Cancer Care. As you can see from the flyer (pictured to the left – click to enlarge) the sign on – in Portglenone Community Centre – begins at 9am with a view to departing at 10am.

The route should be something like this. If it isn’t identical, it’ll be pretty close. As you can see, it is a very flat route of around 63 miles (around 100 kilometres if you’re continental) taking in the delights of Rasharkin, Ballymoney, Dervock, Bushmills, Portrush, Portstewart (where the short food/drink/pee stop normally takes place), Coleraine and Kilrea before returning to Portglenone once more for fun and buns.

Should you require any further information, please phone the following gentlemen and bug them with your inane questions:

  • Gerry – 07850 512 777
  • Lawrence – 07743 155 889

It’s worth pointing out that all participants are expected to wear cycle helmets and not use headphones/earbuds. Please pay heed to this and have fun safely.

* For those who aren’t Cycling Ireland members, the fee is £12 with the extra £2 going toward a day licence. This £2 is the only money which doesn’t go directly to charity.
