Local people have been urged to get on their bikes to help charity Children In Crossfire.

The three-day North West 200 Mile Cycle Challenge will start after lunch on Friday, 12th September.

The event will follow same route as last year from Derry to Enniskillen.

After a rest in the Fermanagh town, the cycle will restart the next day from Enniskillen to Donegal Town, with those taking part staying at the Abbey Hotel.

On Sunday 14th, after a late breakfast, the cyclists will complete the journey back to Derry.

A spokeswoman for Children In Crossfire said cycling fever had gripped Northern Ireland in the wake of the staging of the Giro d’Italia cycle race here.

The spokeswoman said: “Team Children in Crossfire hope the event will inspire many more to slip on the Lycra, hunch over the handle bars and take part in The 2014 North West 200mile Cycle Challenge.”

She added: “The O’Hara and Halliday family and friends will again support our work by organising the third year of the cycle.

“The success of this challenge enables us to continue our vital work helping some of the world’s most vulnerable children get a decent start in life. All we need now is you,

Why not give us a call 02871269898 or drop an email to events@childrenincrossfire.org.”
