THE Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare will take place on Saturday 27th of May. This popular event has its very own cycle for children and marks the day out as a true family occasion.

Not to be out done by their parents on their bikes, children in national school classes between 3rd and 6th can take part in a free kid’s cycle around Kenmare Town on the same day.

This event is run in conjunction with the cycle safety awareness programme running in all local national school on the lead up to the big day.

Mickey Ned O Sullivan a member of the Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare Committee said, “We are pleased to give children the opportunity to get involved in this great day, not just for the fun but also to promote the health benefits of exercise and cycling. The cycling safety message is also important so children taking part will be benefiting in many ways. I look forward to welcoming them and their families to Kenmare.”

The kid’s cycle will start at 10am in Kenmare Square and follow a short 2km route around Kenmare town. A team of marshals will supervise the route and ensure the safety of all children who participate.

Mums and Dads are welcome to join their children cycle this free fun event. Children participating in the events need to register from 9.15am in the marquee located in Kenmare Square.
