On Saturday 12th September 2015, Poolview's Robin McGloughlin will be taking part in the Giants Causeway Coastal Sportive, raising funds once again for Macmillan Cancer Support. Poolview are the UK's leading manufacturer, supplier and installer of safer swimmer systems for swimming pools with their Sales Director, Robin based over in Co.Down.
The 182km Giant Killer offers cyclists the chance to cycle through an area of unsurpassed beauty. It is definitely classed as the BIG one and is not for the faint-hearted but for serious cyclists up for a lung-busting challenge. The route starts off by heading west towards Bushmills, along the Coast Road before tackling some reasonably tough, long climbs through the Glens of Antrim. At Glenarm the route follows the coast road all the way back to Ballycastle including the Torr Head Road which is sure to push cyclists of every level right to the limit. Robin hopes to be rewarded with the best scenery on offer along the North Coast of Northern Ireland. Make no mistake this will be a tough day in the saddle with some serious climbs and thrilling descents but for all who complete this challenge it will certainly be a day to remember.
Macmillan Cancer Support provide support for patients and their families right from the moment they are diagnosed, through their treatment and beyond providing a constant source of support, giving energy and inspiration to help sufferers and their families take back control of their life.
Robin McGloughlin, Sales Director of Poolview said “no one should face cancer alone, we have all been effected either personally or know someone close that has suffered, raising money and supporting Macmillian means a lot to us. I’ve been training hard for this challenge using a ‘MyZone’ heart rate monitor to track my progress. I’ve managed to clock over 40000 MEP points and cycled over 6000 kilometres this summer.”
