The 2468 super cyclists have made it! They tackled the rain, the sun, the rolling hills, flat tyres, slippy gears and even a flock of sheep blocking their passage. But they made it in fine fettle to Dunboyne, Co. Meath, home to 2468’s Irish head office.
Jon, Carmel, Kevin, Rory, Donal, Chris, Kevin and Ian, Thank you for your generosity and giving up all your time in preparation for this mammoth cycle. The children at Indreni are going to benefit from the fruits of your 330 mile cycle!
Four Day Cycle
The 2468 team set off on Monday the 12th August from Basingstoke with the aim of cycling roughly 100 miles a day for three days before finishing on Day 4 with a 30-40 mile cycle into Dunboyne.
Day 1 finished in Ross on Wye after spending some of the day cycling through the beautiful North Wessex Downs. Day 2 saw some challenging climbs for the team and it continued into Day 3 with elevations of 1700m on the approach to Holyhead.
A little sea crossing later and the 2468 Team (led by Jon) arrived in Ireland and continued their pedalling to Dunboyne in Co. Meath just outside Dublin city.
Thank you guys for all your amazing efforts! Between offline and online donations 2468 reached their goal of £25,000 and it coincided with their final cycle into Dunboyne. What a perfect finish!
Why £25,000? We’re glad you asked!
Rami Hari of Indreni is overseeing the building of house no. 2 for severely disadvantaged children in Nepal. £25,000 will be enough to complete the building work on House no. 2 where 34 children will have a roof over their heads, food to eat, a school to attend and people that really care about them. You can see an aerial view video shot of the main house below. The second house will be beside it.
We really appreciate everything that our super cyclists at 2468 have done. We hope you have a good rest! And come see the house when it’s finished, you can be thinking of your next challenge…the Himalayas!
