DUNLOY Cycling Club have been successfully awarded a community grant from Energia - the company that is developing the Long Mountain Wind Energy Project.
The club has decided to invest the money developing a youth cycling strategy in addition to purchasing quality helmets, hi-visability vests and hi-visability lights.
The equipment will be used to enhance the safety of the club's youth riders as they develop their road skills with senior club riders over the coming weeks.
Dunloy Cycling Club Chairman, Vincent Drain, said: "We are extremely grateful for the generosity of Energia and I want to pay tribute to the club members who contributed to the grant application and the local sourcing of safety equipment. This equipment is vital to the safe development of our youth strategy."
Dunloy Cycling Club Child Protection Officer, Seamus Og Kelly, added: "Although Dunloy Cycling Club has only been in existence for six years we have grown to one hundred members during that time. Our goal is to develop a sustainable and safe youth cycling strategy and we will use this equipment to allow our children to become competent road cyclists whilst ensuring the safety of all. I want to thank all who have contributed to this project and encourage anyone young or old who is interested in road cycling to get in touch with us here at the Hub in Dunloy village."
