Around 300 cyclists met in Bangor yesterday morning to participate in a bike ride to Donaghadee in memory of North Down Cycle Club member Gavin Moore, who lost his life in a road traffic accident.

Mr Moore (right) died in Belfast Royal Victoria Hospital after he and three other cyclists were in collision with a car near Conlig on July 11 when out cycling during a club event.

Club member John Hicks took part yesterday, and said it was a fitting tribute to Mr Moore who was "a cheerful chap".

Mr Hicks said: "Around 300 cyclists set off from the McKee Clock in Bangor and cycled to the pier in Donaghadee where a short commemoration was held for Gavin. I believe some of his family members also took part.

"He was always a cheerful chap and that's how people remembered him at the event," he said.

The tribute ride was held instead of the club's annual signature cycling event.
