The Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare, which takes place on May 23rd next, is set to be a truly family occasion. Not to be outdone by their parents on their bikes, children in national school classes between 3rd and 6th will be able to take part in a free kid’s cycle around Kenmare Town.

This event is run in conjunction with the cycle safety awareness programme running in all local national schools on the lead up to the big day. Mickey Ned O’Sullivan, a member of the Ring of Beara Cycle Kenmare Committee said ‘It is good to encourage kids to participate in sport at a young age and promote healthy lifestyle. Educating children on cycle safety is critical as they are the cyclists of the future.’

The kids’ 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 in this free fun event. Children participating in the events need to register from 9.15am in the marquee located in Kenmare Square.

This event is kindly supported by O’Connor Pyne and Co Accountants, who are delighted to be sponsoring this new kid’s cycle initiative.
