The Carson McDowell 220

Team photo

Thanks for visiting our fundraising page. It seemed like a good idea at the time - the maracycle, a leisurely(!) cycle from Belfast to Dublin AND back to raise funds for Co-Operation Ireland and MacMillan Cancer.

220 miles on two wheels over the course of two days. Most of you will be very familiar with the distance from Belfast to Dublin: with the 'new road' now about 2 hours by car, 1 hour 40 by train and...dear only knows how long by bike! We thought we would put our challenge into context for you.

- 220 miles is158 return journeys from our offices to the High Court or 440 laps of a football pitch.

- Dave and Lisa have only just purchased their own set of two wheels and are just about ready to let go of the stabilisers

- it could take us around 10 hours each way: that's almost seven football matches back to back, 10 episodes of '24' or almost the length of the longest Wimbledon match ever! [To be fair, Darren hopes to make it to Dublin in 6 hours, the rest of us are just hoping to make it there in one piece (and we are not even thinking about the return journey)!]

We would be really grateful for your support - we know pleas for sponsorship come through regularly and would really appreciate any financial support you can give.

Many thanks from Darren, Graeme, Dave, Niall, Lisa (and honourary CMcD team member) Shaun.
