2014 Cycle Tour of the fracking country

Over one hundred cyclists took part in the “Tour of the Fracking country” a unique cross border cycle with climbs revealing panoramic views of Fermanagh and Leitrim, on Saturday 14th June. The tour was organised by Lakeland cycling club in Fermanagh in association with Love Leitrim to promote the regions tourism rather than Fracking. But the timing of the cycle has become more critical as Tamboran the company with plans for 3000 wells, accompanying compressor stations and storage ponds in the area, just announced that they are to set the wheels in motion by drilling exploratory wells for core samples in Fermanagh within weeks.
Many thanks to Johnny Gogan for making this video available to Love Leitrim and to all who took part in making this a successful day.
