Pictured are members of the HSOC Cycling Club who took part in the inaugural Great Dublin Cycle.

The 100km route took the cyclists along the coast to Sutton, Malahide and Portmarnock before tackling the hills leading into the Naul finally taking a well earned break to refuel at Garristown.

Our Luck was in when the rain held off enabling us complete the circuit with the sun on our backs.Where next for our intrepid cyclists – the HSOC support team are suggesting a certain tour in France!
