Sunday 18th September - John Linday/Torr Head Challenge

On Sunday 18th September 2016 Team Madigan promote their ever popular Torr Head Challenge, starting at 10.30am from Ballygalley on the Antrim Coast. This is an approved Cycling Ireland event promoted by one of Ulster's long standing clubs. At a cost of £15 per adult and £5 for those under 18 this is
really good value. Under 18's can pay on the day. To Enter this event go to www.entrycentral.com. This will be a big help to the club members who will be catering for the event. As always Team Madigan like to ensure that everyone gets a good feed and know how many have entered is a real bonus.

There is a choice of three routes - 20 mile flat, 50 miles mostly flat with one good climb, and 70 miles hilly which takes in the infamous Torr Head.
All the money donated goes to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
