Turn this Easter weekend into a great occasion with family and friends while helping a great cause. Avail of our hotel package offers and bring the kids on our Easter egg hunt. This is the seventh year of the popular cycling event that has raised more than €90,000 for Aware’s work since it started in 2008.

There are two cycle routes to choose from: a 62 kilometre route and a 125 kilometre route, both of which start and finish in Leenane and take in the spectacularly beautiful surrounds of Connemara, Co. Galway. Cyclists of all abilities are invited to take part and all funds raised will go towards Aware’s information, education and support services. There will be prizes for the first three cyclists home in both the 62 kilometre and 125 kilometre events as well as a few spot prizes! So … get in gear and join the 2014 Aware Connemara Cycle: 62km or 125km, you decide!

As Aware depends on events like this for 90% of its annual funding, participants are encouraged to raise sponsorship from family, friends and colleagues if at all possible. Even small donations add up and will help Aware to continue to provide its vital support, information and education services to thousands of people throughout Ireland who are impacted by depression.
