Event Rules


This event is a charitable challenge for motorcycle riders in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI). A 1000 km tour of Ireland with 3 days riding is the fun bit. Although this is a not an overly strenuous tour, the real challenge is to raise money for Down syndrome Ireland and raise awareness of Down syndrome. The trip is not a race or a timed competition but a challenge for everybody participating and to support Down Syndrome Ireland.

All the roads used are public roads and accordingly subject to current legislation and the Road Traffic act.

The ride out is organised by Down syndrome Ireland and DSI offers no special insurance to the riders or participants. Down syndrome Ireland is not responsible for the participants’ action. All riders operate with their own risk and must take care of their personal property and themselves.
