Irishmen bike America for a cause

Richie McManus, Gearoid Lyons, David McLaughlin, Timmy Malloy, and Ruairi Hession made the streets of Iowa Falls part of their trip across the country to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health in Ireland. The Irishmen  started their journey just more than a month ago, beginning in Boston and ending in Oregon.

At 60 miles a day, it would take an average person on a bicycle 57 days to travel roughly 3,400 miles from Boston, Mass. to Rockaway Beach, Ore. But there’s nothing average about a group of five guys from Ireland who are traveling that route.

And, there’s nothing normal about why they are doing it as they see America and raise awareness of youth mental issues for an organization back home.
