I have taken part in this fantastic fundraising event 3 years in a row and fully intend on taking part again next year 2013. The Guide Dogs for the Blind are an amazing charity dedicated to helping persons who are blind or vision impaired and families of children with autism to achieve improved mobility and independence. They receive over 85% of their income through voluntary donations and fundraising through a network of volunteers across the country. I am delighted and privileged to have been able to take part, meet incredible people and raise funds for this wonderful charity. This cycle is from the most southern tip of Ireland in County Cork to the most northern tip of Ireland in County Donegal and entails covering distances of 70-120 kilometres, spending between six and eight hours in the saddle each day. The support crew and marshals on this trip are extremely helpful and professional, ensuring the cyclists safety and I would highly recommend this event to anyone who is up for a challenging and fun filled week with amazing people.
