Exciting news, Challenge 126 is back for 2013!!

For the third year running, Spin 103.8’s Brian Maher is donating his lovely legs to a good cause yet again, as he gets on his bike to raise funds for Special Olympics Ireland.

At the Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin on Friday 1st November, Brian’s going to attempt to cycle his heart out for 126 miles on a stationary bike, to mark the 126 miles from Dublin to Limerick, the location of the Special Olympics Ireland Games 2014. Some very special guests will be dropping in throughout the day and cycling up a sweat with Brian while Spin 103.8 spin the hits. Make sure you stop by on the 1st to get the chance to cycle with Brian and his mystery guests, and add miles some miles to the fundraising clock.

Brian’s hoping that when we tot up the mileage, he and his team of crack cyclists will have gotten to Limerick and back a few times. What do you think, are they up to it??  Watch this space for more details about the day and the VIP guests, details on how to donate and win some great prizes!
