A GROUP of Dublin-based gardai are set to cycle 600k through Belgium and France this week in aid of Pieta House.

The officers departed the capital today for Ghent in Belgium, where they will begin their cycle.

The event was officially launched at the Belgian ambassador’s residence in Ballsbridge last week, a ceremony attended by Belgian Ambassador Philippe Roland, senior gardai and participating officers.

The annual Garda Tour de Force charity has been  run for 24 years, raising hundreds of thousands of euro for charitable causes.
