Guillaume will cycle 2400km in Ireland (for a good cause)

Published on

Guillaume is preparing to take part in the TransAtlanticWay, a 2,400km cycling race at an altitude of 23,000m. This 2024 edition, the 9th, will see 65 cyclists start and traverse Ireland's varied landscapes. If the wheels! Tells you about it, he'll be cycling for a good cause.

TransAtlanticWay 2024, 2400 km in Ireland

The TransAtlanticWay is a long-distance cycling event in Ireland. The ninth edition will be held in August 2024 and offers a 2,400 km route at an altitude of 23,000 meters. The race starts in Derry in the north and ends in Cork. In complete autonomy, participants must manage only supplies, maintenance, and rest time.

The route of the event generally follows the route of the Wild Atlantic Way, the official route around the Irish west coast. We had the opportunity to do a little bit of our reporting on gravel and bikepacking in the southwest of Ireland.

The event offers two routes: Sedanta – 1700 km and Que Chulainn – 2400 km (for pronunciation, see your Gaelic lessons ^^). Guillaume chose the longest. Last year, cyclist Donnacha Cassidy completed the Trans Atlantic Way (Cu Chulainn route) in just five days.

Personal and altruistic commitment

Beyond the sporting aspect, Guillaume decided to link his challenge to an important cause: helping children with cancer. In collaboration with the association For RoseHe started an online fundraiser to raise funds meant to improve the daily lives of these children.

Hospitalized children, especially those with cancer, and their families experience difficult times. Ross is committed to bringing comfort to their hospital by improving their living conditions in tangible ways. Every euro collected is used to provide relief equipment, organize activities and support families.

Every donation, whether it's €1, €5, €20 or more, is invaluable and helps improve the daily lives of these children in hospital. Don't hesitate to share the prize pool with those around you.
