Saturday’s fourth ride in the fun tour series saw a record 83 riders assemble at Rex Bonar house for the day’s activities.
The previous best had been 77 on the opening day of this year’s series. Another £65 was donated to the Chernobyl Children’s appeal and the total now stands at £860.
The touring group continued with their charitable activities because, during their 35 miles tour to Crosskeys, Moneyglass, Toome, Church Island, Bellaghy, Portglenone and Ahoghill they stopped off at the Bannvale credit union building in Portglenone to support the Macmillan Cancer coffee morning.
The 30 riders in the "B” group completed a 50 miles ride to Toomebridge, Ballyronan, Magherafelt, Tobermore and Maghera at 18.4 mph.
This Saturday’s fifth ride is the first opportunity, for those with full attendance, to earn their bronze medals.

Following on the success of the "group riding for beginners” talk, which was conducted by Cycling Ulster’s Colin Hughes, at the club rooms last Monday night, another lecture has been arranged.
Jim Burns will be the instructor at a puncture repair night in Rex Bonar House on Monday 6th October from 7.15pm.
