Issue 1306 – Cycle Against Suicide arrives in Crossmaglen

April 30, 2018 

A sea of cyclists descended upon Crossmaglen on Sunday as the Cycle Against Suicide passed through the area during its 750km cycle route through the north and south of Ireland. Around 300 orange-clad cyclists made their way to Crossmaglen GAA club yesterday afternoon where they were warmly welcomed for a well-earned stop in the mammoth cycle initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the help and support networks that are available to people across the North and South of Ireland who are battling depression, self-harm, are at risk of suicide or have been bereaved by suicide. Each year, Cycle Against Suicide brings together cyclists with different backgrounds and stories to help break the cycle of suicide. Since 2013, the event has seen over 15,000 cyclists take to the roads to help spread the message that ‘It’s OK not to feel OK; and It’s absolutely OK to ask for help’. The 2018 cycle is the biggest and the best event yet, passing through Armagh, Antrim, Down, Tyrone and Fermanagh on the Northern leg of its route, stopping in numerous locations along the way. The power of the cycle and its message is something that brings families, communities, organisations, schools, individuals and cyclists of all abilities together with a common purpose of ending the cycle of suicide. Each year, Cycle Against Suicide aims to engage more and more communities to begin a conversation about mental health; about looking after ourselves and reaching out to each other. Cycle Against Suicide 2018 takes place from Saturday, 28 April – Monday, 7 May 2018. For further information on the cycle, visit: www.cycleagainstsuicide.com
