EARTH CY­CLE

Bray People - - Bray People -

AS GREY­STONES men Fearghal O Nual­lain and Si­mon Evans pre­pare for their trip around the world aboard their trus­tee bikes, they have been go­ing around pri­mary schools in the area telling the fas­ci­nated chil­dren all about their forth­com­ing ad­ven­ture.

Start­ing in Jan­uary, the ad­ven­tur­ers will spend 14 months cir­cum­nav­i­gat­ing the globe over a dis­tance of 25,000km in aid of de­pres­sion char­ity, Aware, and to high­light the ef­fects of cli­mate change.

The duo will have the ben­e­fit of so­lar pan­els on their bikes to en­sure they have enough power for mo­bile phones, cam­eras and any­thing else they may need.

Both aged 26, Fearghal is cur­rently a stu­dent and work­ing in the wine trade, while Si­mon is a struc­tural en­gi­neer based in Cam­bridge.

Fearghal and Si­mon used to live across the green from each other in Grey­stones, where they once traded Na­tional Ge­o­graphic mag­a­zines and As­terix books as chil­dren.

Fearghal O Nual­lain and Si­mon Evans meet pupils in St. Kevin’s school in Grey­stones to speak about their im­pend­ing trip around the world on bi­cy­cles.
