UL Buildings and Estates top leader board in European Cycling Challenge 2016 in Limerick

A team of individuals largely made up of UL Buildings and Estates Staff were announced last week as Limerick’s top team in the European Cycling Challenge 2016. The team’s top three cyclists (Kieran Tuite, Liz Gabbett and Chris Fogarty) clocked up just shy of 1,000 urban km between them over the month long challenge – i.e. over quarter of the 3,800 km clocked up by the 110 participants registered in Limerick.

Under the Best Cycling City category (as determined by the number of kilometers cycled per inhabitant of the city) Limerick (at 37 km per inhabitant) placed 40th out of the 52 participating cities. Limerick saw off competition from fairer weather destinations including Budapest (22 km/inhabitant), Barcelona (10 km/inhabitant),  and Naples (15 km/inhabitant).
