Murphy Surveys’ Kilcullen Cycling Club welcome Nicholas Roche and riders to the National Cycling Championships
Thursday 23rd of June, Murphy Surveys and Kilcullen Cycle Club [KCC] hosted the National Cycling Championships’ Time Trial event at the firm’s Kilcullen headquarters. The time trial kicks off the weekend of cycling for the championships and looks set to inject an exciting atmosphere into the community of Kilcullen over the coming days.
Staff from Murphy Surveys welcomed the riders and offered assistance to Orwell Wheelers and Cycling Ireland to ensure the day was a success for all involved.
Team Sky’s own Nicholas Roche, pictured above with Managing Director Ray Murphy and Commercial Manager John Richardson, also descended on the venue to take part and ultimately win the Elite Men’s Time Trial. The course took senior and tandem riders on a 40km route with the paracyclists facing a 20km course.
The National Cycling Championships are set to continue over the weekend with further competitions taking place Saturday and Sunday from the Sports Complex in Kilcullen.
It was a pleasure for the company to get to help out on the day along with Liam Walker of KCC and we would like to extend our thanks to the riders as well as organisers for bringing this fantastic event to the premises.
It will be a summer for cycling as Murphy Surveys host their own non-competitive cycle in aid of Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin this July 23rd. With a choice between a 50 km or 100 km route, the event will be a fun day out for all involved as spot prizes will be awarded on the day as well as refreshments courtesy of Murphy Surveys. Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin is celebrating the hospital’s 60th anniversary this year and has touched the lives of many of the staff at Murphy Surveys with the phenomenal work they continue to do for the lives of children and families throughout the country.
If you would like to register to take part in the cycle, you can do so online or by getting in touch directly with the company on 045 484 040.
