Five Lions Clubs from the Cork Harbour area came together to organise a cycle event from Fort Carlisle (Trabolgan) to Fort Meagher (Camden) on April 1st last. This was the inaugural event of what is hoped to become an annual fixture and it proved a big success with over 400 cyclists raising over €21,000 for local charities. The Fort2Fort cycle provided a number of distance options to cater for as many cyclists as possible, refreshments were provided en route and further refreshments and entertainment were provided at Fort Meagher in Crosshaven.
