Foyle Hospice has launched this year’s Cycle the Foyle Ferry Event, which will take place on Saturday 29th June 2024. The event is open to cyclists of all abilities and covers 50 miles (80k) leaving Ebrington Square at 8.30am (sign on starting at 7.45am).

The route will continue onto Magilligan where cyclists will cross on the ferry to Greencastle, sail into Donegal, then cycle to finish at Foyle Hospice, 61 Culmore Road.

All participants will be greeted upon their return to Foyle Hospice with a much-needed cuppa and some delicious home-baked refreshments.
