Cycle Against Suicide in Boyle

The annual ‘Cycle Against Suicide’ will pass through Boyle this Saturday afternoon.

The event previously stopped off in Lough Key Forest Park in 2016 when over 500 cyclists and back up crew enjoyed the beauty of the area.

This year the cyclists will come through Boyle on Saturday May 5th as they make their way on leg two of day eight from Tubbercurry to the stage finish in Carrick on Shannon.

Each year Cycle Against Suicide brings together cyclists with different abilities, different stories, different “whys,”  to help break the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland. The now annual event, has seen over 15,000 cyclists take to the roads, shoulder to shoulder since 2013.

The main cycle takes place this year from Saturday 28 April 2018 – Monday 7 May 2018 (bank holiday). The route passes through 17 counties & 67 towns and stops at 40 locations throughout the 750 Km route.

Separately, the 120k Innisfree Spring Classic cycling sportive, that will be undertaken by many Curlieu Wheelers cyclists, will pass through the Knockvicar and Corrigeenroe areas this Sunday.
