On September 24th myself and other Brown Baggers will be taking part in a charity cycle from Ireland’s East Coast to its West, starting out at sunrise and aiming to finish 230 kilometres and 12 hours later at sunset. We will depart from Howth village after dipping our back wheels in the Irish Sea and cycle to Galway city where we will dip our front wheels in the Atlantic.
The cycle, part-organized by me here at Brown Bag, aims to raise as much money as possible for its chosen beneficiaries; Temple Street Children’s University Hospital and Headway, two very worthy causes. The cycle takes place on the weekend of the Winter Equinox and will be a serious challenge for the 40 participants involved as we attempt to cross the country in twelve hours.
Brown Bag Films has generously donated resources to help organize the day, and any other donations would be greatly welcomed. Please visit Equinox Cycle for more information on how to become involved, and to donate now please visit Equinox Cycle’s MyCharity page.
Thanks for your support!
