A year ago I lost my Dad to Glioblastoma only 6 months after diagnosis. He wanted nothing more than to be given the chance to fight his cancer, but unfortunately brain cancer's are one of the most underfunded cancers, and there where no treatment options available to him.
So I wanted to take on this battle for him and to help raise much needed funds for Brain Cancer research and help make sure other families don't have to go through what my family did.
On June 7th I will be taking part in the TransAtlantic Way. A 2500 km one stage self-supported road bike race between Dublin and Cork via The Wild Atlantic Way
There is a mass start, but as in all ultra endurance bikepacking races, drafting is not allowed and all support is forbidden, so there are no support vehicles and riders must find all of their supplies, accommodation, etc. from commercial sources along the route or bring it with them.
You will be able to follow my progress here and on my social media:
