20:20 Cycle – United We Cycle Against Dementia

After the very successful 20:20 Cycle in 2016 The Alzheimer’s Society launch the 20:20 United Against Dementia Cycle in Northern Ireland. The event takes place on Sunday 13th May 2018 which will see the Launch of "Dementia Action Week" and is being hosted by Omagh Wheelers CC

The key message is: "Take action and help improve the lives of people with dementia".

This year, Dementia Awareness Week is changing to Dementia Action Week (21 to 27 May). Raising awareness and offering support will always be important, but it’s time we all act to make change happen for people affected by dementia.

In the UK, one person develops dementia every three minutes, yet too many people feel excluded and face the disease alone.

That’s why, this Dementia Action Week, we will be asking people to unite and take actions big and small to make a difference to the everyday lives of people with dementia.

The event takes place as follows:
Date: Sunday 13th May 2018
Where: Youth Sport, Killyclogher Rd, Omagh BT79 7NZ
Time: 9.30am Roll Out (Sign on from 8am-9am)

The 30, 50 & 70 mile routes will be marshalled with backup support and refreshment stops provided. There will also be a barbeque available to cyclists at the end of the event.

To enter for this event go to Entry Central

Please note places are limited for each of the 3 routes, early registration is recommended.

A minimum registration fee of £25 is applicable which includes the 20:20 Cycle Jersey, food stop and barbecue on return to Youth Sport. If you wish to raise additional funds for the Alzheimer's Society, please download a fundraising pack @ www.alzheimers.org.uk/fundraising or contact Amanda McGale on 07912 295750

Registration is available on the day between 8am-9am. It is recommended that registration is completed prior to the event to ensure appropriate sizing and supply of the 20:20 cycle jersey
