WW 100 Mile Cycle in 2023

Welcome to our 100 Mile Cycle in 2023, raising funds to provide emergency relief for our supported projects in developing countries.

Your safety is our highest priority. All cyclists must respect and strictly comply with the public health guidelines and other restrictions in force.  It will be very important that each cyclist takes full responsibility for their own safety as this is not possible for the Club and our junior members will need appropriate adult supervision, preferably within the same family where possible.

We can make a real difference and provide emergency relief to help improve the lives of those who are most profoundly affected during this time of crisis. You can read about some of our previous WW Mission Trips by clicking here.

All donations, whether you cycle or not, will be gratefully received!
  1. Donate through our website
  2. Please contact any member of the Committee or send an email to contact@willowwheelers.ie for bank details
  3. Cash or Cheque payable to “Willow Wheelers Mission Fund” can be delivered c/o “Willow Wheelers” to Blackrock College or Willow Park School.

You can get your 2023 “Sponsor a Spoke” card from Christy McDaid. We are very grateful for all your support. If you have any questions please contact any of the Committee, your WhatsApp group leaders or email contact@willowwheelers.ie.
