Snap up a chance to capture your fun cycle

The beauty of cycling: Valerie O’Sullivan’s image captures the magic of a cycle through Killarney National Park

A NOVEL new photography competition has been launched this week to celebrate and promote cycling in the Kingdom.

The Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership and Kerry County Council are inviting people to take part in the Where, in Kerry, will your bike take you? photography competition and are asking people to submit images of where they are travelling or visiting on their bikes around the county.

Recent months have seen a significant increase in interest and participation in cycling with many discovering and rediscovering their localities and well-known or lesser-known attractions and hidden gems around the county.

This has been coupled with an increase in the profile of cycling as a healthy and fun mode of transport and physical activity.

A stunning backdrop a backdrop of the Skelligs for these cyclists.

Participants should be mindful of Covid-19 restrictions and adhere to all public health guidelines.

Entries should be emailed to: [email protected]  before the closing date of October 13. Images can also be shared on Twitter using the hashtag #wherewillyourbiketakeyo.

A number of €50 One4All Kerry Gift Cards will be presented as prizes.  For more information, see kerrycoco.ie and the social media platforms of the Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership.

As this competition relates to cycling, entrants should ensure that they adhere to the Road Safety Authorities cycling safety advice and tips to stay safe while cycling on our roads. These tips can be viewed at www.rsa.ie.
