Saturday 30th June
12.00 – 14.00
‘…Have you ever wondered what happens the rubbish, litter and fly tipping that we sometimes see at the side of the road when out cycling around Wicklow? Well the chances are that it gets cleared up by the good folks at the Pure Project. This is a partnership group dedicated to keeping the uplands of Wicklow and South Dublin in pristine condition. http://www.pureproject.ie/
The Reservoir Cogs CC Committee are delighted to announce that we are the latest of many community groups in Wicklow to Partner with the Pure Project and adopt a local stretch of road as our ‘Pure Mile’. We have chosen a very beautiful stretch of road Between Ballynatona and Bllynultagh Gap above Lacken. We will contribute to the stewardship and monitoring our Pure Mile for illegal dumping and littering in the year ahead. We plan to have a litter pick walk along this road between 12noon and 2pm on Saturday 30th June. This is likely to be the one and only litter pick this year. All litter picking equipment and kit is provided by the Pure Project who will send along a truck to remove any bags of litter after we have finished. Please come and help out if you can as we all benefit from having a well maintained and beautiful environment to cycle through….’

Of course a break from the relentless cold and wet of the Emerald isle was tough in itself and leaving loved ones for a week left us all feeling a little lost and lonely at first (or is that what guilt feels like?). But once we hit the airport bar ….
