The An Post Cycle Series, supported by An Post, the Irish Sports Council and local sports partnerships, encourages people of all fitness levels to get on their bikes in one of the five cycling tours across the country between May and September. The An Post Yeats Tour of Sligo kicks off the series on the May bank holiday weekend and this year is part of the Yeats 2015 celebrations where cyclists can enjoy the wonderful scenery of Sligo, the spiritual home of the great poet.
At the recent An Post Cycle Series national launch, well-known singer and TV personality Bressie was announced as the ambassador for Sligo for the second year in a row. Speaking about the upcoming event he said: “I’m delighted to be ambassador for the An Post Yeats Tour of Sligo once again for 2015. I did the 100km Innisfree Tour in 2014 and really enjoyed the event which is very well organised with good routes and very scenic.”
Bressie, a keen fitness enthusiast and advocate for promoting physical activity for positive mental health added: “Cycling is good for fitness and health and I encourage people of all ages and cycling experience to start training and join me in Sligo on the May bank holiday weekend for the first event of the 2015 An Post Cycle Series.”
Sunday May 3 will host the 60k/100k/160k routes with the 10k and family fun day on Saturday May 2.
