Preparations are in full swing for one of the club’s big events in 2016. The DRP Cycle Point2Point takes place on Saturday and Sunday, May 21st and May 22nd. This is a two-day event from Rosses Point in County Sligo to St John's Point in County Donegal on the Saturay – then returning to Oxfield on the Sunday (with an overnight in Killybegs in between).  That’s 100kms/60 miles each way. The Official Launch and Registration Night for the #CyclePoint2Point will be on Monday, March 14th, in Davis’s Restaurant – The Yeats Tavern, Drumcliffe, at 8pm.
