 David Mulholland - Cycle for Addiction NI
In March my mother passed away having suffered with alcoholism for many years. I’ve also decided this year that I’m going to stop living a sedentary lifestyle and get fit. I decided to set myself a few challenges and also hopefully raise some money for a cause that’s close to my heart. I (and my family) have seen first hand the effects that alcohol (and addiction) can have both on the person and the wider family and I’d love to do something to help others in that situation. I will always wish my mum had been more accepting of support – but in the least by supporting Addiction NI we can help to make sure the support is there for others.Until the start of the year – I had barely been on a bike in about 10 years. Now I’m riding about 3-4 hours a week but have signed up for two challenges later this year.
Challenge: Riding (with a friend – David Tucker) from Edinburgh back to Sawbridgeworth over 5 days. The journey will be at least 450 miles and quite a lot of that is fairly hilly as well. This will be a huge undertaking but the train to Edinburgh is already booked so it’s happening now…
