Cyclists from all over Ireland will undertake a 150 km cycle this Saturday to raise funds for Ballyglass RNLI.
The “Waves-2-Wheels” fundraiser, in conjunction with Belmullet cycling club, will see the participants cycling from Sligo Bay RNLI station in Rosses Point to Ballyglass RNLI in Belmullet.
The RNLI says the event is important to raise awareness and funds for the all-weather lifeboat operating out of Ballyglass and the Bulmullet inshore lifeboat.
A number of volunteer lifeboat crew from Ballyglass RNLI are among those taking part to raise funds for training and equipment.
The cycle begins at Rosses Point at 9am Saturday morning, and the cyclists will travel through Easkey, Enniscrone, Ballina and Crossmolina, arriving in Belmullet on Saturday evening.
