Registration for the cycle is €35 and cyclists can choose either the 70km Heroes route or the 100km Super Heroes route.

This year the club is also supporting the Nepal Earthquake Appeal through funds sent to the Lions International Appeal as well as their other charities, which include Men’s Shed, CUH Children’s Club, Meals and Wheels and Suicide Prevention.
‘If you cannot make the cycle then we are asking people to sponsor our event with a donation however large or small on our combined sponsorship or registration fee charity page,’ said Richard Ennos, President of Kinsale and District Lions Club.
