Route 66 Challenge… see it for yourself!
The Route 66 Motorcycle Challenge 2014
Welcome to the story of the Irish 66′ers. Read through our brief but memorable history since our inaugural visit to the Historic Route 66. In 2002 we paid our first visit to the road that linked America, we have since completed the route in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. It is iconic, it is historic, it is wild, it is wonderful and in its totality, it is America.
This is a challenge with two dimensions. The fundraising challenge for two years prior to take off, in the toughest circumstances to date, yet our 2012 Irish 66′er’s went over and above the call of duty to raise vitally needed funds for our very special hospital. The trip itself requires long days on the road, team work and true spirit. We are so proud of all of them. As we say to our supporters – you do not have to be a doctor to save a life or a nurse to make a difference. Our Irish R66′ers are all lifesavers.
We now look to 2014 and begin our preparations for our 7th trip down “the mother of all mother roads.” The folk we meet, the genuine hospitality, the fellow cowboys of the road, the sunrise and sunsets, the scenery all lend to the mixture that makes this wonderful road so beautifully addictive. And what better way to see it than with your friends, on your bike, the immense benefit of mutual recollection forever etched on your life’s history sheet.
Always with us are those we represent, the fantastic children of Temple Street Children’s Hospital, the magnificent staff who care for them and the many people who support us in fundraising for this great Hospital. They are our Biker Buddies and on their behalf the Irish 66′ers have so far raised €2.2 million euro on our six, previous Challenges. With our 7th trip two years away we look forward to flying a wonderful Temple Street Flag.
Take part in one of the most exhilarating motorcycle challenges in the world, by joining a team of over 100 (motorcyclists, pillions and support) and help raise vital funds for Temple Street Children’s University Hospital. This is the challenge of a lifetime travelling 2,448 miles on the Historic Route 66 visiting Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California. A bonus, you get to do this trip with possibly the best bunch of people you could ever be lucky enough to have in your book of friends.
