A group of Mayo cyclists, some with an agricultural influence, are set to try to raise monies for charity by carrying out a mammoth cycle.
The cycle spans 1,600km in total and will run from England’s most southerly point “Lands End” to Scotland’s most northerly point, “John OGroats”. Not only will the group undertake the mammoth cycle, but they will carry it out in the space of four days!
The group commence their cycle this morning, June 14th and will raise money for three worthy causes. These include “Our Ladies Hospital in Crumlin”, the “Western Care Association” and “Northwest Simon Community”. All funds will go to the charities who help sick children, people with learning disabilities and the homeless, with the participants covering their own costs!
Among the participants are the founder and co-owner of the Lely centre in Mullingar Alan Heaney from Killasser, who you may remember from Lely’s many Snapchat takeovers. Also taking part are Gary Smyth and Garry Bigley from Kiltimagh, Colm Carney from Bohola, Johnathan Verry from Crossmolina, Gerry Boots from London and sheep farmer Pat Murtagh from Tubbercurry in Sligo.
The group have set up a gofundme page to help raise funds for the three charities, which you can see here.
