Crossing countries bike ride

Have your say

CYCLISTS are urged to saddle up for a charity bike ride.

The Foundation of Light is once again calling on cyclists to get on their bikes and hit the roads of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England to raise funds for the charity’s award-winning sports, health and education programmes.

Following the resounding success of the inaugural Dublin to Sunderland (D2S) Cycle Challenge earlier this year, which saw participants travel 380 miles through four countries in five days, the Foundation of Light will be hosting an information evening tonight to officially announce the launch of D2S 2013.

Taking place at the Stadium of Light at 6pm today, foundation staff and event organisers will be on hand to discuss the D2S Challenge in greater detail, share their experiences and answer any questions about the ride.

D2S 2013 is due to take place in June 2013.

Event organiser Harry Hall said: “The D2S Challenge is a great event for people who fancy doing something a little different while helping improve their community in the process.

“We’ll be covering everything from what type of equipment and training you’ll need.”
