Matt and Brad have been riding together for years, on increasingly difficult rides and races. This is unexpected for Matt, as he was told “no bikes for the rest of your life” by his doctor after an injury, only to take on Ireland’s Transatlantic Way, a 2500k route along the west coast of Ireland years later… Matt and Brad finished in 7 days, 15hours, and 43 minutes, finishing first place out of seven teams!
LIOTR’s “the Big Lap” project video is live and I must say, it’s a great watch!
“Conor Brady grew up in Ireland, where his father Bill would leave every August on a two week ride around the country. A ride he called “the big lap.” Bill Brady lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2013, and Conor never got to share that ride with him. In the summer of 2017, Conor pieced together his father’s route from his old maps, and he and the Leave It On The Road crew set out to recreate The Big Lap, riding 1,000 miles in 10 days to raise donations for the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer.
To date Leave It On The Road has raised over $100,000 for cancer-fighting non-profits by planning epic rides with purpose. Learn more and get involved at leaveitontheroad.com“
