Maghera Cycling Club, Carn Wheelers organized a charity cycle in aid of the Children’s Heartbeat Trust, raising the fantastic sum of £1,770 to help children with heart disease in Northern Ireland.

The organizers would like to thank those who made and/or served refreshments, the Mayor of Limavady, Sean McGlinchey for his contribution and help towards marshalling, for those that ‘manned’ food stations, businesses who sponsored the event, the cyclists who attended the event and anyone else who contributed in any way.
