WHAT a fantastic success the inaugural Coast to Curragh charity cycle, the brainchild of Gavin Lynch, has been as it has raised a phenomenal €145,000 for Cancer Trials Ireland.

Last Saturday September 25th, over 300 people got on their bikes for the charity cycle, taking in seven racecourses and two stud farms. Starting at Laytown Races and finishing at the Curragh Racecourse, the Coast to Curragh charity cycle covered 155km in total.
