IN 2014, North West STOP had two cyclists raising funds by taking on the Cycle Against Suicide. This year, we have 5!
We are delighted with this support and wish the women well on their way from Dublin, through…. Tullamore, Nenagh, Limerick, Listowel, Killarney, Mallow, Cashel, Kilkenny and Kildare!

Using pedal power to promote a conversation about mental health, this annual event is a movement of cyclists of all abilities and backgrounds. Family, friends, work colleagues and total strangers come together to publicly raise awareness throughout towns and communities across Ireland that mental illness is accepted like any other illness and help is real. It is vital that we work together to change the way mental illness is viewed. Let us learn to see the person and not the illness. We encourage all to get involved. Help us empower those who are suffering by promoting our message: ‘It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help’.
We ask that you lend your support during this event to help promote change within your community by joining with us in any capacity during our main cycle.
The main cycle takes place from Saturday 27 April 2019 – Monday May 2019 (bank holiday) and creates a very tangible and practical opportunity for people who want to help support those who are affected by suicide. The Route Schedule 2019 and Route Map 2019 are now officially launched.
The Cycle Against Suicide community is determined to let people in every corner of the island of Ireland know that: it’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help.
Together, shoulder to shoulder, we can Break the Cycle of Suicide in Ireland!
