Tour de Leinster is a 4 Day, 600km charity cycle which took place in August 2016 in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.
The Tour is a challenging and inspiring event for everyone involved with the route taking in all the counties of Leinster. Motivated by Down Syndrome Ireland’s very successful involvement with the Tour de Munster cycle, Down Syndrome Ireland embarked on this new venture to raise vital funds to support our essential work.
All the funds raised by the cycle will benefit Down Syndrome Ireland both at national level and across our Leinster branches. A huge thank to our cyclists, sponsors and supporters for their hard work and dedication – you who have helped grow the Tour from its inception in 2014.
Thank you so much to everyone involved!
Gary Leech, one of the cyclists in this year’s Tour de Leinster, appeared on the Ireland AM couch alongside his twins Max, who has Down syndrome, and Millie.
He featured alongside cycling legend Stephen Roche who also participated in the 4-day cycling challenge. Gary spoke openly and honestly about being a parent of a young child with Down syndrome.
