Report by Elaine Fannin
Sunday 14th April was the annual Tour de Foothills sportive in aid of KARE, a voluntary organisation which supports children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The sportive started for the fifth year from Naas GAA club. This year an extra 18km had been added to an already challenging 100km.
The weather woman had promised strong winds and for once she was true to her word! The turnout was less than last year but the weather conditions frightened many away, including some of our own club members! Spirits were high, though, as the sun was out (for a short while!).
All in all it was a tough day in the saddle and one to test the character and determination. A lot pulled out during the event, so it was good just to finish it!
Some great photos can be seen on the KARE Tour de Foothills facebook page.
