Cycle for Brother Kevin was first established as 'The Great Escape' Cycle in 2010 by friends Fergal Flynn and Paul Kelly. Both had a keen interest in cycling, an awareness of the good work of The Capuchin Day Centre, and also in the town of Belmullet, Co. Mayo!
What started as an informal group of 6 cyclists in 2010 has now grown into a massively successful organised event which will be limited to 100 cyclists in 2020 with the ultimate aim of raising more funds for this worthy cause. The Event raised over €105,000 in 2019 alone.
The cycle this year will be a special one as we will sadly skip Belmullet in favour of West Cork, the beautiful birth place of Brother Kevin. Cyclists will leave the Day Centre in Dublin City on 13 May 2022, overnight in Horse and Jockey in Tipperary, arriving into Clonakilty on the evening of 14 May 2022.
