“This year all participants had a choice of 8 mile, 14 mile or 26 mile routes. All routes started from Loughshore and went along the tow path as far as Shaws Bridge and back to Loughshore. The weather was not looking good as it had been raining all week, but lucky enough Saturday 9th June 2012 stayed dry and overcast.
This has been the 6th year of the bike ride and most of the people have taken part every year to which I am very grateful. This was the 1st year for Harvey the dog who completed the 8 mile route, Ryan Surgeoner who completed 26 mile route and Hannah Young who completed 4 miles. They seemed to enjoy the day and will hopefully will take part again next year. Refreshments and a finger buffet was supplied by Phyllis and George Dickenson, this is also the 6th year they have had the picnic waiting at the finish line for all taking part.”
