Better Life Cycle 2018: Copper Coast Tour
Better Life Cycle is back for its fifth installment with the Copper Coast Tour, taking place on Saturday, 2 June 2018 in Dungarvan, Co Waterford.
Two routes will be on offer – 150 km and 65/75 km – both of which are challenging and scenic. You can view the routes in detail at the following links:
•150 km: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22167304
•65/75 km: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22167437
In the shorter route, cyclists have the option of doing the climb of Mahon Falls, which brings the route’s distance from 65 km up to 75 km, but adds a nice additional challenge to those so inclined.
Better Life Cycle is different from typical sportives in that cyclists are grouped together by preferred speed, ensuring that everyone involved can safely complete the event at their own pace, while at the same time providing a more social atmosphere within each group.
There is no fee to sign up for the event, though participants must pledge to raising €150 in sponsorship, 100% of which goes directly to improving the services St Joseph’s Foundation offers to its users. Sponsor cards will be issued shortly after registering.
Starting in 2014, Better Life Cycle has grown to be a massive source of funding for the event’s beneficiary, St Joseph’s Foundation, in Charleville, Co Cork. Over four events, Better Life Cycle has raised over €250,000 for the charity, which is helping ensure St Joseph’s can continue to provide much-needed services for children and adults with disabilities in Munster
