Challenges, and supporting charities, have been a feature of my life in my years of retirement. Barclays have been instrumental in this, always generously matching your donations up to £750 on every occasion. - a lot of matching done.....

Having completed Coast to Coast in 2003, LEJOG (End to End) in 2015, my triple Eco Challenge (three big circuits) in 2016, with a number of others in the past, I could only consider Head to Head next to complete the titles, for the time-being. That, wanting to support another worthy cause, and experiencing the wild beauty of the west coast of Ireland have all influenced this new challenge. 

I would love to do this with you in mind, aware of your support and financial encouragement.

Event details

Mizen Head - Malin Head - 600 mile Cycle challenge

Mizen to Malin (MizMal) with Wild Atlantic Cycling is an end to end cycle tour of Ireland. The Irish equivalent of Britain’s Land’s End to John O’Groats (LEJOG), with rugged coastline and unique landscapes. (

My chosen charity for 2017 is The Buxton Mountain Rescue Team (Charity Number: 1153507). Specifically to sponsor their move to a new  digital radio system, an expensive project,  needed due to a national change of frequency. 48 sets are needed, plus a mobile unit mounted in each of our four vehicles. Total cost likely to be in the region of £15,000.
The BMRT service was originally set up to help people in difficulty on remote/moorland areas. This has expanded to other types of searches and locations, e.g. co-operating with the police in searching for missing  and vulnerable people in semi-urban areas, or assisting the ambulance service with patients in places with difficult access or in adverse weather conditions.

“Ensuring the casualty gets the best coordinated help is essential, imagine carrying a 20kg stretcher up a hill to then find that it is not needed.
