Europe’s biggest charity awareness cycling event, the Cycle Against Suicide (www.cycleagainstsuicide.com ), takes place across Ireland from Monday April 22 to Sunday May 5.
Aimed at tackling suicide, the 1,400km 14 days cycle, starting and finishing in Dublin, will cover a gruelling 100km each day. Cyclists and support crew will be arriving in Mayo on Sunday April 28.
Cycle Against Suicide organisers are asking locals to show their support by cheering on the cyclists, which include some of Ireland’s top celebrities Roz Purcell, Bressie, Brent Pope, PJ Gallagher, and Colm Hayes.
The cyclists will stop at the following locations: on Sunday at Ballinrobe Community School (1.15pm ) and St Joseph's Secondary, Castlebar, on Sunday April 28 (4.30pm ). On Monday an event will be held in St Mary’s Secondary School, Ballina (11.45am ).
