Team Galen is made up of a group of cyclists from Greystones, Cycle Plus, Bray Wheelers and the UK who will depart Mizen Head on May 3rd, 2014, riding an 800km route to Malin Head over 4 days.
It's a big undertaking. Some of us, such as Galen's brother Daniel, have barely ridden a bike before. But we all want to do something significant to to let Galen, Michelle, Kailuca, Tasiana and Levi know that their family, friends, work colleagues and the local community are all behind them and ready to give them our support.
Arriving at this page means you already know what happened to Galen last year so let's look forwards and not go over what has passed. Our hope is that you're as keen as we are to do something that will make a real difference to him and his family. You can express your support by making a donation. Donations are transferred directly to Galen from this site.
Whether you grew up with Galen; got to know him through Michelle, Kailuca, Tasiana and Levi; met him by living in Greystones; work with him at the Irish Daily Mail; or rode with him at Bray Wheelers and Wicklow Tri, you'll know he's a one-off. Cycling and fitness define Galen and there are few athletes with a more generous spirit. Galen is the guy who'd ride at the back of the pelaton, leaving the group to rescue stragglers and keep everyone together. But while Galen would be the first person to help someone else, he would be the last person to draw attention to himself.
So, it's our turn to give Galen a back wheel to follow and let him ride in our slipstream for a bit while we face the wind for him. With this fund raising we want to show Galen just how many people there with him. So, please get behind our team and give generously if you can.
