Folks it’s that time of year again, and Comeragh Cycling Club are proud to present our annual Copper Coast Sportive on Saturday 23rd April 2016.
It being an Olympic year, and with the Paralympic Games taking place in Rio in September, all proceeds will go to “Cycle to Para Dreams”, club member,
Damien Vereker’s quest for the Rio Paralympic Games 2016. As you are all aware, Damien has been shortlisted on the 56 person panel to represent Ireland on the tandem at the Rio Paralympic Games.
