Take on the ultimate Irish cycle challenge from Irelandís most northerly point Malin Head, to the most southerly, Mizen Head, and raise vital funds for children and young people with cancer in Northern Ireland.
The seven day event will take place from 18-25 May 2013, is open to everyone and will see participants take on this legendary challenge which weaves through stunning Irish countryside. This is a fantastic personal challenge, where you can meet likeminded people or equally a great team building opportunity for you and your colleagues.
Ulster and Ireland Rugby Star Stephen Ferris who launched the event said;
ďI am delighted to be launching CLIC Sargentís Malin to Mizen Cycle Challenge. On average, families in Northern Ireland have to travel 95 miles, up to five times a week to access the cancer treatment they need for their sick child.
Its 415 miles from Malin Head to Mizen Head; which is much less than the journey many families make every week. This thought will definitely help spur everyone on as they train for the challenge. This will be a fantastic experience for all participants as they get to see some of our beautiful countryside and of course enjoy the legendary Irish hospitality
You will be accompanied by a professional cycle leader who will organise all local transfers, accommodation, meals, plus a support team including a bike mechanic who will be on hand throughout the whole trip. CLIC Sargent will be on hand every step of the way to support you with fundraising, training and fitness advice.
There is a registration fee of £195 and a minimum sponsorship is required. All funds raised from the event will go towards the Northern Ireland Homes from Home Appeal.
