  • SQS Digital Labs is proud to announce the launch of the 2018 “SQS Tech Team Cycle Challenge” in aid of NSPCC Northern Ireland. This event follows on from the highly successful cycle challenges held in 2016 and 2017, which saw over 20 teams from the software and technology sector in Northern Ireland taking on a gruelling 80km cycle and raising over £50K to date for local children who are supported by NSPCC in Northern Ireland.

    The event will take place on Saturday 12th May 2018, supported by Event Ambassador John Madden and Event Champion Philip Corr and with  The Titanic Quarter Cycling Club as the Event Partner. The event is open to small and large corporates alike and it encourages team participation from Cycling Clubs. Growing bigger and better with the option of taking on either the 80km or a new 40km route, both event routes starts in Ballygally, where riders can fly up the scenic coastal stretch, passing through the villages of Glenarm and Broughshane - while incorporating a testing team ‘Time Trial’ section and the introduction of a gruelling hill climb challenge, appealing to those with a competitive streak. Chips supplied!

    Refreshments and nutrition will be available around the route and riders will be welcomed back with some hot food and goody bags in advance of prize-giving.

    The funds raised will help support the NSPCC’s vital services across Northern Ireland which includes the NSPCC Childline helpline operations in Belfast & Foyle, the therapeutic work for those who have experienced abuse, and the NSPCC ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ programme which is aiming to reach every local primary school.
