The Mizen Looper is an Annual Charity Cycle established to raise funds for West Cork Down Syndrome Support Group. The cycle spans the beautiful coast of West Cork. Beginning and finishing in Collins’ Centra, Drimoleague. Car Parking is provided for free in the Drimoleague GAA Grounds.
There are two routes available including an 80 km and 130 km route. There will be strong support from fellow cyclists, paramedics, bike mechanics, motorbike marshals, car, and van support. All of whom are volunteering their time. All proceeds go to the West Cork Down Syndrome Support Group.
