Following the sudden loss of his mother Bridie Murphy to cancer, Irish based cyclist Dave Murphy decided to do something to raise awareness of cancer by taking on the hardest, longest and most difficult cycling challenge in Ireland; Mizen to Malin Head (625km).
However he has chosen to do it totally FIXED. His weapon of choice - the Condor Lavoro track bike.
Leaving at 6am on Friday 28th May Murphy set out from Mizen Head (Cork) on his non-stop solo epic and arrived in Lain Head (Donegal) on Saturday 29th May. It is the first time any cyclist has attempted this distance on a Fixed Wheel Bike.
Dave set up the site FixCancer with its aim to drive attention and resources to educate, check, screen, cure and prevent cancer.
