Brakes Support Team Yes Chef Cycle
60 chefs, 3 days, 300k #teamYesChef2016

Lisdoonvarna was the place to be last week on the 23rd, 24th and 25th May, in association with Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, The Burren Slow Food Festival and YesChef almost 60 chefs and people who work in the catering industry came together for a three day leisure cycle to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland.

Chefs from across the country joined us in the Burren Storehouse for an 11.30am start to what was to be an amazing cycle through some unrivalled landscapes on the Island. We were clearly being held in good favour as the sun shone consistently for the three days.

This group of people were an amazing bunch, providing each other with support, comradeship and mentorship to get through what was an equally challenging and enjoyable cycle. There were people there who hadn’t done many miles and left the training a bit late, along with those who were seasoned warriors with thousands of miles under their belt, Derry Clarke, Warren Massey and Hugh Murray to name but a few, were true mentors. There was a real team spirit and the craic and laughter spurred everyone on.  

Brakes were delighted to support this fantastic event for a worthwhile cause by providing an event vehicle and food to keep all the cyclists well fuelled and on the road. 

Next years event is confirmed for the 22nd, 23rd and 24th May 2017 in Lisdoonvarna. Places will be limited and first choice will be given to those who took part this year. Please contact nicci@yeschef.ie for further details.
