MTB team takes part in WE Charity cycle

What could be better than a beautiful sunny day and a cycle along the coast of the Ards Peninsula with the promise of a good lunch and on a work day to boot? The weather was superb as three intrepid MTB riders, Viv Harty, Kay Collins and Enda Lavery in the company of dozens of other cyclists set out to take part in the WE charity cycle. Kay quickly powered off leaving Enda and Viv to navigate their own way through the country lanes (they ended up in a farm at one stage) and coastal paths.

Kay won the prize of being the first female to the lunch stop and Viv won best dressed cyclist. You can see them showing off these prized trophies in one of the pictures.

A lot of money was raised for the charity. The WE Charity is an international charity that partners with communities to help lift themselves out of poverty using a holistic, sustainable five-pillar development model. WE Villages’ five Pillars of Impact are:

Education, Water, Health, Food & Opportunity. Each pillar is a critical component in breaking the cycle of poverty of children.

Well done to Viv, Enda and Kay for their efforts….but particularly Kay who we think took it a little more seriously than the other two. We’re told she left them for dust!!!
