Edinburgh To Dublin Cycle Challenge
Discover the dramatic mountain landscape of Scotland and Ireland's rolling green countryside as you cycle along the 220 mile route from Edinburgh to Dublin.
This three day cycling adventure will take you from capital to capital, on your first day taking you through quiet country lanes from Edinburgh to Troon, where you'll catch a ferry to Larne for an overnight rest. Savour the beauty of the east coast of Ireland and absorb the stunning landscapes as you ride south towards Banbrige and a stay in Newry before continuing along the coast further south to Dublin on Day Three.
The event has been designed to accommodate different levels of cyclist ' so you can work at your own pace but no matter how much of a challenge you make this, the sense of achievement when you reach your champagne reception in Dublin will never be forgotten. Round off the night with a celebration dinner (and maybe a pint of Guinness or two!). You'll even have a chance to enjoy the hustle and bustle of Dublin on Day Four before flying back to Edinburgh later that afternoon.
This is an extraordinary challenge with every mile you ride, and every penny you raise helping Marie Curie nurses to provide care and support to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes, close to the people they love.
Marie Curie Cancer Care will be hosting an open evening on Tuesday 31st January at Finnegan's Wake bar in Edinburgh, to enjoy a bit of Irish hospitality. So come and join us from 6pm to find out a bit more about this brand new event, visit our website at www.mariecurie.org.uk/edinburghdublin, or call us on 08700 340 040.
