  All those who knew
Ned Flanagan either through cycling or friendship can now lend their support to Rehab on a special day. On the 19th of February the Ned Flanagan cycle will take place to raise funds for Rehab. Two events are planned, a road race and a leisure cycle, both 43 miles long.

The Road race event is for all Cycling Ireland Categories and will be run on a handicap bases. Start time is at 11.45 am outside the Bell Yard Pub in Monasterevin. The race route is one 43 mile loop from Monasterevin, to Ballybrittas, clipping the outskirts of Portlaoise on to Stradbally, Athy, Kildangan, Kildare, Cherryville and back to Monasterevin for the finish at the Bell Yard on the main street at approximately 2.15pm.

The Leisure Spin will leave Monasterevin at 12.15pm and will travel the same route as the Competitive Event and while the majority of these participants will pace themselves for the reasonably flat course some no doubt will be testing themselves over this 43 mile loop to achieve a fast time. The event is organised by Newbridge Cycling Club, more details on the event can be found here. TO enter contact John on 087-2453403 or Frank on 087-6404516
