lap the lough is an annual cycle event around lough neagh, the largest lake in ireland and britain. It took place on Sunday 27th of August. Ruth one of our new members and her husband took part and has told us about it below. Well done Ruth!
I had originally entered lap of the Lough 5 years ago although due to becoming pregnant I never got the opportunity to actually do it. Two kids later life got very busy. Thanks to the Sofa to Saddle team earlier this year I was able to take the time to build up some training on the bike and I finally completed the 97mile event yesterday along with my husband. The event itself was brilliant, it was efficiently organised for such a large number of people and well signed along the way. I did mention to Mervyn that I was happy to retire from cycling now but seeing as I have invested in a lovely new Iveagh jersey I guess I will have to keep up with the cycling.
