Wexford Quay will be a sea of orange on Saturday (September 26) as cyclists and non cyclists gather for the latest in the monthly series of Cycle Against Suicide SpinOffs. Among those participating will be Jim Breen, 'Secret Millionaire' and founder of Cycle Against Suicide.

The 55km SpinOff leisure cycle starts at 11 a.m.

The route takes in Barntown, Taghmon, Waddingtown and Baldwinstown before stopping in Kilmore Quay, at around 1 p.m., for refreshments and some speakers. The cycle will continue on to Kilmore, Bridgetown, Piercestown and Drinagh before finishing back on Wexford Quay for more refreshments. This will be followed at approx 4.30 p.m. by more speakers and everyone is welcome to attend.

Cyclists can register in the Quayside marquee on Friday evening from 7.30 p.m. - 9 p.m. or on Saturday from 8.30 a.m. - 10.30 a.m.

All cyclists must wear a helmet and be 18 years or over.

Registration is €30 per person or €10 for members of Cycling Ireland.

Cycle Against Suicide is a registered charity that aims to raise awareness that it's ok not to feel ok and it's absolutely ok to ask for help. The SpinOff is organised by the community, for the community and for the benefit of everyone in an effort to break the cycle of suicide on

the island of Ireland.

The Wexford SpinOff is supported by Wexford County Council, Borough District of Wexford, Wexford Gardai, Wexford Wheelers Cycling Club, the local business community and a team of hardworking local volunteers.
