My story

In 2020 during one of the COVID lockdowns a peloton of 12 completed the ‘Long Weekend’, cycling 410 miles round Northern Ireland in 3 days.

This December some of that crew make up a group of 16 who will be completing the ‘Longest Night’. There are three Golf Clubs in Northern Ireland with the Royal heritage. The event is a 270 mile, 24-hour cycle from Royal Belfast Golf Club, visiting Royal County Down Golf Club and Royal Portrush Golf Club before returning 24 hours later to Royal Belfast Golf Club, during the shorted day or the “Longest Night”.

The event is to raise vital funds and continue to raise awareness for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to conduct research into Motor Neurone Disease.

Dodie Weir OBE, who earned 61 caps for Scotland and also represented the British and Irish Lions in 1997. Doddie faced his biggest challenge as he battled the disease, a condition that affects the brain and nerves.

He set up the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation in 2017 after announcing that he had been diagnosed with MND, to help raise awareness and funds to find a cure for this devastating disease.

Doddie Weir, whose charity has raised over £9m, was presented with the Helen Rollason Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in December 2019.

Sadly Doddie passed away on Saturday 26th November but his legacy lives on.. The team will embark on this challenge with a smile of his memories and a tear as we think of the pain and hurt his loving family are going through..

Doddie.. This is for you.. RIP
