The cycle as part of the biggest loser took place on Sunday with a good crowd attending. THe route which is 16km long went from monageer via clondaw into boolavogue and back to monageer via the harrow.
A competitive edge to this fun cycle happened when a breakaway group of four decided that they would ignore Carton’s instructions not to overtake the lead car. This led to a fiercely contested sprint from the grotto in Monageer to the finish line, where Sammy Greene powered ahead to take the win ahead of John O Loughlin, Stephen Murphy and Peter Mernagh, and secure a 1-2 for team Turner on the day, Daire himself arrived a few minutes later. Stephen O Leary decided that 16 kms wasn’t long enough so he and some of his collegues took a detour through Oulart.
Overall the cycle was very enjoyable and hopefully it will help the leaders in their quest to become THE BIGGEST LOSER 2013.
