Brother and sister team Pete and Keara Brennan are off on their next adventure, cycling 12,000+ km from India to Ireland to raise money for a educational children’s charity Room to Read. This independently organised and self-funded trip will take them through India, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, Greece, Croatia and much of Eastern Europe.
The siblings have already overcome the loss of much of their equipment and one bicycle, lost by the airline in transit to India. This involved Pete cycling (and walking!) 500km on a single speed Indian bicycle which has now been donated to the YMCA, Mumbai. Enjoying the hospitality of local people, they have cycled the beautiful Konkan coast of India and are currently cycling north to Delhi, India.
Room to Read is a small, transparent charity which really makes a difference building schools and providing education to children all over the developing world. Pete and Keara have witnessed first hand what a difference this makes to impoverished children’s lives and will be visiting Room to Read schools along their route to see how their fundraising efforts are making a difference.
Icebreaker have generously sponsored Pete and Keara a wide range our outdoor clothing and they are very excited to be testing Icebreaker’s new line of cycling shorts. “They are beautifully designed, tough, comfortable and after 1000kms… they still don’t smell! We are soon to be cycling through a bitterly cold Iranian winter so we will be glad to have Icebreaker protecting us from the elements.”
