Wild atlantic way motorbike challenge 2016


Join the Blazing Bikers on their 9th Annual Motorbike Challenge

in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs

The Wild Atlantic Way Challenge 2016

Dedicated to the memory of Lorraine Shanahan

This year we are dedicating the trip to the memory of Lorraine Shanahan who we lost tragically in November. Anyone that knew our Lollie would know what a kind, gentle and caring person she was, always thinking of her next fundraiser and always trying her best to help anyone that she could in anyway that she could.

We wanted to dedicate the Wild Atlantic Way Challenge to Lollie’s memory, to make this trip the very best we can, our hearts are truly broken without our lovely Lollie but we want to make her proud, keep the trip going this year and make it the biggest success that we can for her.

The total raised last year on the UK Moors & Dales Motorbike challenge including events leading up to it  and sales of Christmas Cards and Calendars was €46,000.

All Proceeds went directly to the Irish Guide Dogs
