Help Break the Cycle of Suicide by Joining/Supporting Annual Cycle Against Suicide 2019

Cycle Against Suicide is an awareness charity that makes a valuable contribution to the public education of mental health by changing the narrative surrounding suicide. Each Year, Cycle Against Suicide brings together cyclists of all abilities with different backgrounds and stories to help break the cycle of suicide in Ireland. This year’s cycle will travel 800km passing through 63 towns, rallying hope and support in localities around Ireland.

Each homestay host provides cyclists with a warm meal, a chance t freshen up and a bed for the night

This cycle promotes a key message to local people: ‘It’s OK not to feel OK, and it is absolutely OK to ask for help’. This simple yet powerful message could save the lives of those within our communities who are feeling alone. 

Cycle Against Suicide operates a Homestay Programme that sees people and families from across Ireland open their doors to participants of the Cycle each year, providing them with a warm meal, a chance to freshen up and a bed for the night. This provides the opportunity to lend your support without necessarily having to get on a bike.

The event will be coming into Limerick City on Monday, April 29 2019. As part of the National Co-ordination Team, we are trying to put a Homestay Co-ordination team into Limerick City in order to secure a homestay for 200 cyclists and back up crew. Over the last number of year’s community groups have come together to secure and allocate the beds needed for the overnight stop.

Registrations are now open for Cycle Against Suicide’s annual cycle, which takes place from April 27, 2019, to May 6 2019. Register your support as a homestay host family today by emailing [email protected] and together, shoulder to shoulder, let us break the cycle of suicide in Ireland.
