Ballymote  – Glasgow Cycle

As a supporters lead project to promote the charitable origins of the club we will be cycling from Brother Walfrid’s home in Ballymote, Co Sligo to Celtic Park to coincide with the clubs first domestic game in the clubs 125th year. The cycle will commence on Thursday 08th November and arrive at Celtic Park in time for the St Johnstone league match on Sunday November 11th.

We are seeking volunteers to take part in the cycle and raise funds for Celtic Charity Fund’s “1254125” campaign.

Draft Itinerary

Leave CP after Barcelona game on Nov 7th

Travel overnight to arrive in Ballymote 09.30 Nov 8th

Thursday cycle 40 miles

Friday cycle 75 miles

Saturday am cycle 25 miles then Belfast – Cairnryan ferry

Saturday pm cycle 35 miles

Sunday cycle 50 miles arriving at Celtic Park prior to St Johnstone game on November 11th

There will be overnight accommodation on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.


In order to meet deadlines for ferry and to ensure we are cycling in daylight hours we need to be cycling consistently at 15 mph

As most of the cycling will be on road then a racer / road bike would be better than mountain bike.

In addition to the cyclists we are looking for a couple of volunteers for support drivers (first aid experience would be an advantage) who will travel along the route with the cyclists and assist as necessary.
