David Cahill did it – 120 miles of the Ring of Kerry – you’ve still time to sponsor him to celebrate this brilliant effort.

In his own words … ‘David Cahill is a 60 year old, overweight, grandfather. What kind of crazy guy is he to want to cycle 180 Km (120 miles) in a day, up and down hills – the highest of which is 860 feet above sea level and goes all the way from seaside up a 9% gradient – to the very top. 

Well, he is doing it for Network training and counselling ( cos his wife is a trustee. Network provides low cost counselling to people all over Bristol.  Please support him in this crazy endeavour. ‘
