Story

We'll be tackling a large part of the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland, unsupported and using nothing more than pedal power covering more than 2000km.

We'll be doing around 120km a day and should complete the whole route in just under 4 weeks.

What is the Wild Atlantic Way?

The Wild Atlantic Way, 2600 km in length, is one of the longest defined coastal routes in the world. It winds its way all along the Irish west coast from the Inishowen Peninsula in the north down to the picturesque town of Kinsale, County Cork, in the south.

With a total elevation over the route of 24,000m (almost 3 times the height of Mount Everest!!)

Who are we raising money for?

Pieta's vision is a world where suicide, self-harm and stigma have been replaced by hope, self-care and acceptance.

Without support they would not have been able to give hope to over 60,000 people since 2006.

In 2020 Pieta delivered over 52,000 hours of intervention and bereavement counselling and managed over 70,000 crisis support calls.

All of their services are provided free of charge. This is only possible because of donations.
