Ireland to China Charity Motorcycle Ride

The cause

John and Brigid Rynne are proud to announce that this motorcycle ride will raise money for two charities whose aims are to provide counseling and support to children and young people suffering from a variety of mental health issues and who may be at risk of suicide. The two charities are:

The William Winder Rainbow Foundation, a charity based Co. Clare, Ireland. Set up in memory of a local teenager, by his parents.

Young Minds, the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the emotional well-being and mental health of children and young people.

The challenge

In April 2015, we will commence a 9,500 mile/15,000 km ride from our home town of Inagh in County Clare, Ireland, to Beijing in China. We will ride through the UK and western Europe into the Ukraine, then into Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, back into Kazakhstan and Russia, then across Mongolia and, paperwork permitting, into China!

Having arrived in China, it would seem a waste to turn around and head back west, so we’ll ship our bikes to the US and make it a world trip!
