The Longest Night & The 24-Hour Spin

Event date: 21st December 2022

Stuart Thom are raising money for My Name'5 Doddie Foundation

Our story

Due to the weather in Northern Ireland the two upcoming events have been swapped around.

The 21st December some of the larger group will be completing a 24-hour spin in Bloomfield Shopping centre, Bangor and the main event. Starting at 10pm on Tuesday 20th December the team will be cycling on indoor bikes / turbos until Wednesday 21st December..

The longest night now take place on Saturday 11th march 2023.

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.

March 2023 some of that crew make up a group of 16 who will be completing the ‘Longest Night’.

The peloton will start at the Royal Belfast Golf Club on Saturday 11th March and cycle 270 miles within 24-hours visiting Royal County Down Golf Club and Royal Portrush Golf Club before returning back to Royal Belfast Golf Club.

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, 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.

Sadly, Doddie passed away on Saturday 26th November, but his legacy goes on and the foundation will keep striving to find a cure to help everyone affected by this cruel disease.

Doddie.. This is for you.. RIP
