Thank you to all my M2M sponsors

Just wanted to use this post to thank all my sponsors for this week’s Mizen to Malin cycle..  Looks like we will be blessed with great weather – wish we were out cycling this morning!

A particular thanks to all my colleagues at Hermitage Medical Clinic who held a special breakfast this morning and have been very generous in their sponsorship and encouragement.

And, as always, for anyone else out there who would like to be a sponsor: my sponsorship page

Looking forward to loading up the bike tonight, packing the sun cream and off to the sunny south west (Mizen Head) with my fellow 51 cyclists at 5.30am tomorrow.

M2M route for 2016

So, lots of training for M2M done since that spin in the rain on Christmas morning (when I still thought 25Km was a cycle).  And then the spins to Howth, to Rathnew, to the Sally Gap, to Arklow. Just three days now until we set out on our 690km venture from bottom of Ireland to top of Ireland (Mizen Head, Co. Cork to Malin Head, Co. Donegal), over 5 days (Wednesday 1st June to Sunday 5th June).

Our route

Looking forward to visiting Mizen, Killarney, Ennistymon, Ballina, Ballybofey and Malin – and lots of places in between.  And travelling with 51 fellow cyclists.

Breast Cancer Ireland

This cycle is in aid of Breast Cancer Ireland and Kilmacud Crokes Development Fund.  We expect to raise in excess of €100,000 to be split between both: that is a minimum of €50,000 for Breast Cancer Ireland. If you have not already supported us please contribute on-line by logging in to my M2M mycharity page – all contributions gratefully received.

Hoping to post each day from the road – perhaps with some gopro snippets.
