‘Saddle up for Epilepsy ‘, a national Charity cycle in aid of Epilepsy Ireland, takes place this Saturday February 25th.
Starting at Breaffy sports arena. This brilliantly organised local event was an enormous success in 2016, with over 400 cyclists taking to the roads of Mayo, and raising over €24 k for Epilepsy Ireland.

Last year, Rua helped out with the event on the day by organising a ‘POWER PORRIDGE’ station in Breaffy Sports arena on the morning of the cycle to help fuel all the cyclists hitting the road for the day. This year, we’re extremely proud to asked back and as well as our ‘Porridge Station’,  we will also be there with our local coffee supplier, Aaron Page from Westport’s BEAN WEST roastery.

We’re also really proud of our Rua team members getting on their bikes for the day and best of luck to Ann, Risa, Carol Anne and John who have been busy over the last few weeks getting in the training runs as they prepare for the event on Saturday.

Please support this great local event and visit saddleupforepilepsy.com where you can still sign up for the cycle or make a donation to the event.

We’d also like to acknowledge the efforts of event orgainiser and her team,  Brenda Quigg. Brenda’s dynamism and energy have been an inspiration to all involved with the cycle and we’ve really enjoyed working with her on the event.

See you on Saturday – we’ll have the banana bread, ‘ Power Porridge’ and Bean West coffee ready to go from 8 am!
