Croi Galway is celebrating a quarter century of cyclists supporting their cause at the 25th Annual Tour de Lough Corrib cycle this summer.

Registration is  now open for the biggest charity cycle in the West of Ireland to raise money to fight stroke and heart disease with Croí.

It’s incredible that this year we are celebrating the 25th cycle, and we have so many long-time cyclists that have been with us from the beginning,” says Christine Flanagan, Fundraising Director.

“It’s a fun cycle along a great route, and all abilities are welcome to join us. Every euro raised helps our team to continue our work here at Croí, leading the fight against heart disease and stroke in the West of Ireland.”

Cyclists will have a choice of a 45km, 80km or a 120km routes starting from the sports pavilion in Dangan and will take the route via Headford, Cong, Maam Valley, Oughterard, back to Galway, finishing at Croí House.

Roadside assistance, support vehicles and plenty of refreshment stops will be provided on the day, along with a post-cycle celebration event.

Enter as an individual cyclist or get a team together, with group photographs happening at Croí House after the event.

The cycle will take place on on Sunday, June 9 in association with long-time sponsor Corrib Oil, the cycle’s main sponsor for 25 years running.

Registration is free and essential at www.croi.ie/cycle, and cyclists are asked to fundraise for Croí. All cyclists will receive a technical t-shirt.

Cyclists that reach a fundraising goal of €150+ will receive a specially designed 25th anniversary cycle jersey and entered into a raffle to win a fantastic bike package to the value of €1,000
