This May Bank Holiday weekend (May 5th to 7th) is one to place in your motorcycle diary, for the RevUp motorcycle run. For 2018 this charity motorcycle run has a new name, after Down Syndrome Ireland’s decision to cease organisation of the event. Not to worry though, as this event which was the brainchild of the late Aidan Lynam will continue to prosper, thanks to continued support from the Dead Ducks Motorcycle Club.
As in previous years the route will remain a mystery, with riders departing from Joe Duffy Motorrad’s showrooms in Dublin on the Saturday morning. They will be given details of the route for Day 1 with the overnight hotel unknown until they arrive that evening. For 2018 RevUp is supporting the Lord’s Taverners Ireland, a charity for disabled young people with special needs. One of this year’s beneficiaries will be St. Michael’s School, Holy Angels in Chapelizod, Dublin. Aidan’s daughter Robyn attends the school, it is hoped that money raised can purchase a new minibus for the school. A donation will also be made to Spina Bifida Ireland.
Participants must raise a minimum of €650 for a rider and €500 for a pillion to partake in this worthwhile event. Registration is now open, please visit www.revup.ie for further details.
