Beth Reid, Janet Nelson and Claire Hogarth from Friends of the Cancer Centre help Dromore Cycling Club members Heather Dobbin and Andrea Quinn launch its Twelve Kings Challenge sportive taking place on 16th June 2019. The sportive which is one of the best attended in Northern Ireland is being used to raise vital funds for the charity.

With four cycling distances to choose from of between 40mi/63km and 60mi/97km, 12 challenges and a series of exciting innovations, the 2019 event promises to be even bigger and better than previous years.

Club Chairman David Adair said: “Last year we renamed Dromore Cycling Club’s sportive the Twelve Kings Challenge in honour of local folklore. This year, we wanted to make sure everyone, from the fastest to the slowest riders, had an opportunity to have as much fun as possible. For 2019 we’ve introduced unique challenges, fun photo opportunities and the potential for cyclists to decide when they want to ‘abdicate’ from the main route as well as a host of other fun elements. We hope that everyone enjoys the new format, and that the weather, the one thing we can’t control, is kind to us!”

A £15* entrance fee in aid of Friends of the Cancer Centre includes pre-registration tea and coffee with traybakes, a full barbecue and even an ice cream at the finish.
