The launch of this year’s Wexford Cycle took place on Wednesday 8 May at Arthur Cox’s office in Dublin.
Marking its 30th anniversary in 2019, Peter McVerry Trust’s Wexford Cycle is one of the longest running charity cycles in Ireland. The cycle, which starts in UCD and ends in Wexford town, will be held on Saturday 14 September.
Today FM’s Matt Cooper served as MC for the event, interviewing a panel which included two longstanding cyclists Dee Keogh and Eamonn Carney. Mick Lavelle, who founded the Wexford Cycle, was also in attendance and plans to take part in this year’s event.
This is the second such launch for the Wexford Cycle, with RTÉ’s Ray D’Arcy taking part in last year’s event.
With a goal of over 400 cyclists, Brian O’Gorman of Arthur Cox pledged that 30 people from the company will take part in the event. To mark the 30th anniversary cyclists can choose from two route options, the traditional 135km route or the newly added 100km route.
Early Bird registration fee is €65 from March 19th to June 7th 2019. Register for the event here.
