On Saturday, August 19th, the community of Tralee will once again host a 50km cycle as part of the Cycle Against Suicide SpinOff series. A SpinOff is a locally organised cycle that takes place monthly after the main 14-day Cycle around the island of Ireland ends. The events are locally organised, owned by the community and championed by Cycle Against Suicide ‘Local Leaders’. A SpinOff has all the colour, energy and fun of the annual Cycle but is packed into a single day.

The Tralee SpinOff promises to be a particularly special event. It will depart from Austin Stacks GAA Club, in Rock Street, at 2.30pm on Saturday, August 19th. The 50km route will once again visit the picturesquecoastal village of Ballyheigue, where entertainment, refreshments anda mental well-being presentation will take place. The cyclists will then have the tremendous honour of leading in the 2017 International Rose of Tralee parade.

Cycle Against Suicide continues to work towards breaking the cycle of suicide on the island of Ireland.This SpinOff is the perfect opportunity to help spread the Cycle Against Suicide message, “It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help”, while simultaneously participating in an incredibly uplifting and positive event.

There are many ways to become involved. If you're looking at cycling and getting involved on the day, make sure to check out the Tralee SpinOff Event page HERE for all the details and to share with your friends.
