Paris to Geneva Cycle Challenge

A relative of mine, and fellow cyclist, Fionnan O'Dwyer is about to embark on a new challenge. Last year Fionnan rode with a group from Dublin to Paris to raise funds for the Irish Hospice Foundation. This year he'll continue his efforts by riding from Paris to Geneva.

The ride is due to start next Sunday, the 24th July, and it'll take Fionnan 4 days to complete the approx 500km, including a Tour De France Category 3 climb, the Col de la Faucille. From recent experience trying to sprint Fionnan to the top of Howth Head that should be no problem to him!

Last years ride raised over €500,000, of which Fionnan managed to raise approx €9,000. This year he'd love to raise even more to assist the Irish Hospice Foundation roll out a Palliative Care program for children. Fionnan's company, WML, will cover his costs so every cent raised will go to the Foundation.

Fionnan has a web portal where donations can be made. To access it click here.

I hope you can support Fionnan, and more importantly the Irish Hospice Foundation and would like to wish him, and all the riders, the best of luck from the Muse-ette.
