New Orleans to Miami

Cycle Challenge 2021

My name is Sharon and I come from the South East of Ireland. I’ll be undertaking a long distance cycle challenge in January 2021 and I created this site to share the experience, and to encourage others like me to find their passion and don’t let anything get in the way.

The cycle fundraiser will start from New Orleans and end in Miami, with a schedule period of two weeks. I’ll start the trip on the increasingly popular Southern Tier cycle network, before joining Atlantic Coast Cycle Route from Augusta and onwards to Miami in southern Florida

I’m focused on my aim to raise at least €5,000 for two chosen charities, the Irish Deaf Society and also Talk to Tom, a mental health charity from my home. Being deaf since birth and having sometimes struggled with my mental health as a result of associated situations these are charities close to my heart.

All money raised for this event will go towards the charities. I’ll be paying for my own flights, lodging and expenses. It’s not the first long distance charity race I’ll have completed although it will be the first one I’ve organised myself.

I’ve be plotting and planning this event for a few weeks now and I’ve created a list of FAQs if you want to learn more. Alternatively get in touch for any questions, to join me for parts of the challenge, to help out in fundraising or tips and advice ahead of the event.
