Riders sought for Finn MacCool cycle challenge

The cycling challenge The Finn MacCool 100 held in Northern Ireland is now in its 5th year and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for the event on Sunday 11th September.

This 100-mile route sets out from the grounds of the Pavilion Sports Complex, Stormont and follows a linear route along the stunning coastline of Northern Ireland to Coleraine.  This is a giant of a ride where the rolling hills of the glens and the steep climbs on the coast make it a tough challenge to take on.

The event is fully supported with feed stations, lunch stop, marshals, mechanics provided by Chain Reaction Cycles, and post event massage! There will also be a post event BBQ and bus transport back to Belfast. Don’t forget, each participant will also get a free cycling jersey sponsored by Ulster Bank! 

Last year, cyclists participating in the Finn MacCool 100 raised over £17,500 to fund medical research to improve the quality of life for thousands of sick and vulnerable babies and children!

“Through the energy and drive of those who take part, we’re able to achieve our goals by helping you achieve yours.” –Action Medical Research

Research currently being supported by Action Medical Research includes work around premature birth, cerebral palsy, meningitis and epilepsy, as well as some very rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
