We are delighted to launch the 7th annual BIKE-2-BOFIN 90k charity cycle from Galway to Inishbofin, with option of a shorter 45k from Maam Cross. Cyclists are welcome to participate in either route option:
90k Route - Galway-Moycullen-Oughterard-Maam-Recess-Clifden-Cleggan-Inishbofin (ferry crossing from Cleggan to Inishbofin).
45k Route - Cycling group regroup at Maam Cross, where cyclists participating in the shorter route will join the group. Maam-Recess-Clifden-Cleggan-Inishbofin (ferry crossing from Cleggan to Inishbofin).
This event is open to cyclist of all levels and promises to be both challenging and fun filled with the option of an overnight stay on the island of Inishbofin.
This cycle is in support of local charity “Voices for Down Syndrome Galway” (www.downsyndromegalway.ie). Since its inaugural in 2013, the event has raised €150k, a staggering achievement for all involved. This year a portion of the funds raised will be allocated to the newly opened Down Syndrome Galway West centre. Based in Moycullen village, it aims to provide activities, services and support to children and adults with Down Syndrome in the area and their families.
The primary purpose of Bike-2-Bofin is for all participants to approach the event in an enthusiastic manner and enjoy a worthwhile endeavour. We ask participants to raise (or donate) a minimum of €120 (excluding registration fee). 100% of monies raised/donated by each participant will benefit and support the vital work by the charity.
There will no registration on the day of the cycle, all cyclists must register online. Registration for Bike-2-Bofin 2019 is now open….
