WHAT started out as an idea over a few pints between friends three months ago, has now come to fruition.

Both Aidan Ryan from Dunmanway and John Hurley from Innishannon are hitting the road on their bikes to raise much-needed funds for Cancer Connect and Marymount Hospice.

The pair are set to cycle from Malin Head to Mizen Head and will begin on Monday September 7th and plan to finish on Thursday September 11th.

The two employees of Keohane Readymix in Rossmore near Clonakilty have never undertaken such a task before, but they are both members of Ballygurteen Freewheelers Cycle Club.

‘When we decided to do the cycle we got in touch with Clon Cycle so we could co-ordinate with them in raising funds and it just took off from there,’ said Aidan, speaking to The Southern Star.

‘We’ve had great support so far and Keohane Readymix have sponsored the jerseys,’ he said.

He added that the guys have already collected ‘a couple of thousand euro’ so far, but hope to raise more by the time they finish.

People can donate by logging onto www.cloncycle.com if they want to sponsor the cyclists.

While the pair are used to heading out two or three evenings a week, they will be faced with cycling 50-80km per day until they land back home.

Helping them along the way will be Niall Hurley, who is acting as their support vehicle, and they are hoping for good weather for the duration of their cycle.

‘These are two very worthwhile charities that we are undertaking the cycle for, and we hope we can raise as much money for them as possible.’
