Cycling from Atlantic to the Mediterranean
MALLOW lady Mary Rose Burke is cycling from San Sebastian (Atlantic) to Barcelona (Meditterean) with a group from all over the country in the hope of raising money for Hospice Ireland.
The cycle is 789km in length and takes in the Pyrenees.
At going to press, Mary Rose's first day was completed after a very tough180km cycle.
Her good friend and fellow cycling enthusiast Regina Glynn normally does the trip with her but this year Regina is cycling from Canada to Mexico, a journey Mary Rose would love to challenge but due to work commitments this was impossible as she would require six weeks for the venture.
This is the sixth year of this event which began with Dublin to Paris, Paris to Geneva and Geneva to Nice.
We wish her all the very best in her cycle for a great cause.
