Cavalcade of cyclists pedal for Tinylife

Ninety-seven cyclists from 21 companies in Northern Ireland have taken part in the inaugural Colliers International Big Property Bike Ride 2015 - a 40-mile cycle in aid of premature baby charity TinyLife.

Participants powered their way from the Stormont Hotel in East Belfast via the Comber Greenway, on to Newtownards and along the Ards Peninsula.

The six teams fueled up at the Barholm in Portaferry before boarding the ferry to Strangford. From there, it was an easy cycle to Quoile Yacht club where everyone was able to enjoy a BBQ and live music before being bussed back to Belfast later that evening.

Valerie Cromie, Head of Fundraising for TinyLife, said: "My sincere thanks and congratulations to Colliers International on organising this fabulous event and raising an incredible £3,551 for the charity.

"The funds raised will allow TinyLife to provide a range of support services for the families of premature and ill babies as well as supporting ongoing vital research into maternal and child health and family support services’.

Organiser Cathy Smyth said: "Colliers International would like to thank all those involved for making the event such a success including LK Communications, Pioneer Group, Phoenix Cycle Club, Chain Reaction Cycles, The Barholm in Portaferry, Quoile Yacht Club in Strangford, all the helpers and of course the cyclists.  We hope to see you all again in 2016."
