Following on from the success of our cycle to Dublin last year, Naomh Malachi are hitting the road again this year with a 100km “Tour De Lu” cycle on Sunday the 3rd of August. Our cycle will take us from Courtbane via Knockbridge, Castlebellingham, Annagassan, Clogherhead, Dunleer, Ardee, Tallanstown, Louth Village back through Knockbridge and back home to Courtbane.

We would be delighted if clubs would sponsor 2 cyclists to join us on our cycle. Although our cycle is for the novice/beginners cyclists, a full back-up service of repair, medical and marshals will accompany us on the day. Each cyclist will receive a limited edition cycling jersey to mark the occasion and full refreshments will be served on the day. There will be a presentation made to all cyclists later that evening in the clubrooms with live music and light refreshments. All welcome.

Registration fee is €50 per person. You can register right up until the morning of the cycle however we do advise that you register before Friday, July 18th to be guaranteed a limited edition Naomh Malachi Tour de Lú cycling jersey.

We understand in the difficult financial times this may not be an option for your club, but we would appreciate if you can display our poster (on your social media/website) and inform as many members of your club as possible.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
