Well, after a few years on the Race the Ras wagon, Joe is now at the helm of a new charity event known as the Pink Ribbon Tour. 

Pink RIbbonThe Pink Ribbon tour is a new three-day charity sportive in aid of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. This new cycle will depart Mullingar on Friday 7th September, bringing the riders across the Sleive Bloom Mountains en route to Limerick.
