Great support from local football clubs and cycling clubs – very much appreciated as well as our own Path of the Pearses Cyclists!
A special word of thanks to all our volunteers who helped out with the organising, with stewarding, providing shelter at our food stops, donating and providing and serving refreshments, and to everyone who cycled!
