We want to give a warm welcome to Andy, Solo 555 and going all out for a great charity, looking forward to meeting you Andy .
I’m Andy McAfee and will be taking part in the 555km Solo event this year.
I’m from Dunleer in Co. Louth and I am a member of the Whiteriver Wheelers Cycling Club.
In more recent times, I’ve taken part in a number of endurance cycling events, namely, Joe Barr, Mizen to Malin, Race around Ireland team event and local league racing.
During Covid I felt it was too easy to say no to going out on the bike so I needed to set a new challenge for myself and I chose to do this Ultra event.
To be able to participate in this race, this couldn’t happen without the support and encouragement from my wife and 3 kids, who gave their stamp of approval before I signed up!
Not to mention my crew (John & Pete) who are dedicating their time and effort to help me get across the line.
John who crewed for me before on the Joe Barr event, and Pete who was my team mate in the race around Ireland so they’re more than capable of keeping me moving forward!
Not only am I doing this as a personal challenge, I’m also doing it to raise money for the IMNDA charity.
Let’s hope the weather Gods are on our side on the 5th. See you at the start line!
