The Special Olympics started their Cooley Cycle Challenge for the second year in a row from Dundalk Stadium on Saturday last.
All monies raised will go towards supporting Special Olympics athletes in local clubs.
The 70km challenge route is suitable for both seasoned and novice cyclists with professional support along the route and both came out in force to support the cause and enjoy the challenge.
“We are delighted to support the Special Olympics again this year and hope everyone involved enjoyed the experience”, said Jean Clerkin of Dundalk Stadium.
“The weather was on our side so the cyclists had some beautiful scenery to take in along the way before returning to the Stadium for the finish where they enjoyed some refreshments after all of their hard work.”
