Get Erika to America 5000km cycle.

June 27th & 28th 2020

With no tour of the Lakes, all sportives cancelled this year and group cycling slowly returning, why not join in on this charity event next weekend. Hopefully this will help kick off your training for when the restrictions are eased in the coming weeks and months.

So what’s the plan?  Put simply I am asking people to cycle any distance on the above dates and register your distance with me on or on our event page on Facebook ( ), to help us reach our goal of five thousand kilometres. Take a picture of your completed distance on your cycling computer or screen shot your Strava, Garmin or any other app you may use to track your spin. Why not get your family and friends involved too.  The more the merrier and the quicker we will reach our distance!

Any donation big or small is greatly welcomed and if possible we would be very grateful if you could rustle up some sponsorship from friends and family. I have set up a dedicated go fund me page. Please see the link below. All donations may be made anonymously. As a little extra incentive, I have also managed to secure a number of spot prizes for those who partake and donate to the event which will be raffled off.

Erika is a five year old girl from Mullingar who is suffering from a rare form of cancer and requires specialist treatment in America. By taking part and donating/fundraising for this event you will be helping a family from the local community to get the treatment she requires. You can find more information on their Facebook page about Erika and all the fantastic efforts that are going in to help ‘Get Erika to America’.

Please share this far and wide across all your social media platforms in order for us to spread the word and make this a successful event.

Many thanks to Lakeside Wheelers for all their support in organising and backing this event.


This is a non Cycling Ireland event so it’s open to everyone who can cycle a little or a long way. We would like to remind everyone to ride within the current regulations but most importantly ride, record your distance and donate on the link below.

We hope to see you on the roads over the 27th & 28th June.

Thank you.
