Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Michaela Boyle, has joined members of Strabane Lifford Cycling Club to mark the 10th Anniversary of the cross border club.

A socially distanced photo call was held to mark the landmark at the Tinnies roundabout site, near the border between the two towns, earlier this week.

Mayor Boyle praised the clubs committee for their work in promoting cycling in the town over the last ten years and wished them well for the future.
"Congratulations to everyone at Strabane Lifford Cycling Club on reaching this milestone," she said.

"I have personally witnessed the club grow over the last decade with membership and participation in a wide range of cycling activities increasing year on year.

"The cross border and cross community aspect of the club is a major driver in their growth and the continued success and popularity of the sport locally.

"On behalf of the local cycling fraternity I would like to commend the club's dedicated committee for their commitment to their sport and I wish them well for the future."

Strabane Lifford Cycling Club was formed in 2010 by Strabane man Brendan Patton and has grown to cater for a wide range of cycling disciplines and abilities.
Among the categories the club has developed include racing, sportive, leisure, ladies and youth teams.

The Cycling club plan to mark its 10 Year Anniversary with a series of celebrations and events throughout 2020.
