Tómas Mac a’tSaoir from Ballyferriter has travelled to the United States and will begin his solo cycle tomorrow in San Diego.
The cycle will see him travel along the South Tier Corridor, close to the Mexican border, bringing him through a number of states and climates.
He hopes to complete the cycle in six weeks.
Tomás said he was inspired by Tralee teenager Dónal Walsh who passed away in May 2013 after a brave battle with cancer.
He says Dónal’s message on mental health is more relevant now, than ever.
