A huge thank-you and congratulations to everyone who took part for making the sportive a resounding success! This year for the first time the weather played havoc for the first 3-4 hours until it cleared mid morning, however this didn’t dampen the spirits of the 100,s of cyclists that set off on the 100KM distances with some heading for the gruelling climbs up Torr!. It is wonderful to see this annual event become so popular with local cyclists and many from further afield with entrants from Dromore, Dromara,Newry and Dublin. It was great to be there at the finish to hear the comments of the riders praising the organisation, the volunteers and the marshals.“Feedback from riders has been overwhelmingly positive and supportive – and we were encouraged to keep up growing the event.
One entrant said "Just wanted to say a big Congratulations and thank you for a very well run event this year. Checkin staff were warm and welcoming, the food stop was well organised and really enjoyable, the Morrow Foods soup went down a treat. Hope it went as well for you as you had planned and worked so hard for. I have another £20.00 donation where can I send it? God willing I'll see you again next year, keep up your sterling work, you do Make a Difference”. Peter
