Bro Kevin 2 Day Charity Cycle Dublin – Belmullet

June 7 & June 8

| €50 Deposit & 350 fundraiser

This is a charity cycle and the 100 riders are split into 3 ability groups. There are several refreshment breaks along the route. Registration is available online, link below,  and there is a minimum fee cyclists have to raise.  It is a charity cycle and not a race and is two days of fantastic craic and good cycling.

The Route

Day 1 sees us leaving The Capuchin Day Centre on Bow Street after breakfast in the direction of the N4 Lucan Road. From there we head through Leixlip, Maynooth, Kilcock, Enfield, Mullingar, Edgewordstown, Longford and onto Drumshambo. A total distance of 160 km.

Day 2 sees us leaving Drumshambo and cycling to Boyle and onto Gurteen, Tubbercurry, Ballina, Crossmolina and finally arriving in Belmullet. A total distance of 140 km.

Anybody who knows these roads will know that they are mostly flat with a few nice dips here and there. There is a nice hillclimb as we ascend the Ox Mountains but but its worth it to get to the top for the scenery and of course the downhill descent into Bonniconlon!

If this daunts you, then you should know everyone who has taken part on this trip has made it and enjoyed the weekend! Our stewards will always be there to give you a helping hand and that much needed motivational speech on the move!

The Charity

The Capuchin Day Centre is run as an apostolate (work) of the Irish Capuchin Franciscan Order and since the late 1960’s has operated a food and day care facility for people who are homeless or in need. From humble beginnings of providing soup and sandwiches for about 50 people, they have grown to be the biggest food centre in Dublin City. In keeping with the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, they do not charge for any of their services.

They operate an ‘Open Door’ policy and ask no questions.
