We are delighted to announce the 4th annual MightyMatthew Coast to Coast charity cycle. Starting off once again at the fantastic Pigeon House Restaurant Clontarf on the East Coast we decided to take it easy and go downhill all the way to the south coast finishing in Cork City.
We are hoping to increase our numbers this year after the great success of the last three years. All levels of skill are welcome and much encouraged. Those who took part in previous years have had various levels of fitness and ability (so don’t let that put you off). Previous participants also ranged from those who have not ridden a bike in over 30 years to the more competitive riders for whom cycling is an ongoing passion.
The cycle will run over 2 days – Friday 17th August and Saturday 18th August 2018. On Friday 17th we will set off and cycle approximately 160km to our stop over location – Kilkenny. Early on the Saturday morning we will hit the road again for the remaining 165km to Cork along the south coast.
The entry fee which covers the cost for Cycling Insurance, 2 nights Hotel Accommodation and meals, will be similar to previous years (approx 250€). A Mighty Matthew cycling top will also be provided to all of the cyclists.
Each cyclist is required to raise a minimum of €500 for the charity – Sponsorship Cards will be provided well in advance of the cycle so we can start the fundraising early and the website facilitates online donations.
Our group training cycles will start again in a few weeks when the weather gets a bit warmer and we get back on the road. We have a special deal in with Little Sports Cycling shop for those who need to purchase or upgrade a bike or any other cycling equipment required
Lets try and make 2018 the best & biggest yet. We hope you can get involved in any way you can! It’s a fantastic weekend of fun and most importantly, all to support a wonderful young man!
