Fort 2 Fort cycle for charity is back

Wednesday, 11th March, 2020 3:57pm

It is time to get in gear for the 2020 Fort 2 Fort Charity Cycle! Taking place on Saturday 4 April, it aims to raise vital funds for the Mercy University Hospital Foundation, four Lions Clubs in Cork city and county and Camden Fort Meagher Restoration Committee.

Building on last year’s success, this year’s Fort 2 Fort Cycle will include the three routes in addition to the popular shorter route. The shorter route of 40km departs Camden Fort Meagher in Crosshaven and reaches Monkstown in 55 minutes, with the return route taking slightly longer at just over the hour mark. Spanning a low lying terrain, this route is suitable for all levels of cyclist, however organisers suggest that some training for any sporting event like this is advised.

Fort 2 Fort, now in its ninth year, has firmly established itself in the calendar of Cork’s cycling enthusiasts of all abilities. The four designated routes of 40km, 65km, 85km and 120km will all start and finish in Camden Fort Meagher, Crosshaven, each with stunning views of Cork Harbour.

Jim O’Connor, Chairman of Fort 2 Fort said: “It’s always a very exciting time of year as we gear up to the cycle and Fort 2 Fort 2020 is no different. We’re happy to be welcoming back many cyclists who have supported our charity sportive in previous years and hope to see some more new faces taking to the roads this year.

“The success of the Fort 2 Fort Charity Cycle thus far has been due to the massive support we have received from our cyclists, so I’d encourage anyone who might consider participating to come join us for an enjoyable cycle, regardless of your level, there are routes for all abilities!”
