Cyclists are welcome to participate in either route option: 90k Route…Galway-Moycullen-Oughterard-Maam-Recess-Clifden-Cleggan-Inishbofin (ferry crossing from Cleggan to Inishbofin). 45k Route…Cycling group regroup at Maam Cross, where cyclists participating in the shorter route will join the group. Maam-Recess-Clifden-Cleggan-Inishbofin (ferry crossing from Cleggan to Inishbofin). This event is open to cyclist of all levels and promises to be both challenging and fun filled with the option of an overnight stay on the island of Inishbofin. This cycle is in support of local charity “Voices for Down Syndrome Galway”.(www.downsyndromegalway.ie). Last years’ event raised €21,800, a staggering achievement for all involved.

Our thanks to SAP (Galway) and the support of their SAP volunteer Project 2016, in providing DSI Galway with a grant for Galway Community Circus to facilitate a Family Circus Summer Camp for our members and their families.

Lots of fun was had by all ages, learning juggling, tumbling, hula-hoop, tight rope walking, balancing, games and more- with a party on the last day of camp!

Thanks to all involved in organising and running this fun filled family event...enjoyed by all ages.
