Once again there was various events over last weekend and WLCC was well represented in numerous events.
The Saddleup4eplisey took place on Saturday from Castlebar via Tubbercurry and back to Castlebar, there was two routes 70km and 128Km and both routes were well represented by former pros and wannabe pros.
