Virtual Round Ireland cycling challenge for RNLI

We are 4 youth 29er sailors(Max Goodbody, Nathan van Steenberge, Sam LeDoux and Tim Norwood)who with our coach, Thomas Chaix are going to virtually cycle around the Irish coast, visiting all the coastal RNLI lifeboat stations along the way. These funds will go towards supporting the RNLI in these uncertain waters and keep them afloat. We hope to raise over 2000 Euro by the end of this challenge, which will be over 2000 kilometres and around 14 thousand meters of climbing. We are aiming to do this in eleven days, with each day being a different distance. Were going to complete the challenge by virtually cycling. This is done by connecting our bikes to an app that is fixed in place, whether that be in our sitting rooms or garages. It then tracks the miles we physically cycle while also adjusting the terrain automatically.  Every donation matters and we will be very grateful if you could donate and mention this to your friends and family, as every little helps. All of us are sailors and appreciate the work of the RNLI, and understand how dangerous and unforgiving the sea can be. We are thankful for the bravery of the lifeboat volunteers who go out and risk their lives for others in all weathers. It would mean a lot to us if you could support us in this project. You can find more information about the RNLI and their work here: 

You can track our progress on any of our social media platforms which will be managed by our teammate Leah Rickard.
