What’s a ‘SpinOff’?
A Cycle Against Suicide ‘SpinOff’ is a locally organised spin that takes place on the third Saturday of every month after the main Cycle ends. The events are locally organised, owned by the community and championed by Cycle Against Suicide ‘local leaders.’ A SpinOff has all the colour, energy and fun of the annual Cycle but is packed into a single day. Entertainment, refreshments and of course a mental well-being event takes place before and after the cycle.

*** NO REPRODUCTION FEE *** DUBLIN : 7/5/2016 : Cycle Against Suicide calls on new Health Minister, Simon Harris T.D. to prioritise Mental Health, as 30 people take their lives by suicide in two weeks. On the final day of Cycle Against Suicide, as participants prepare to cycle from Arklow, Co. Wicklow to Dublin's Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, the mental health charity called on Simon Harris T.D., the new Minister for Health, to reverse the previous government's decision to divert mental health funds, and highlighted the shocking fact, that 30 people have died by suicide since the cycle departed Phoenix Park, just two weeks ago.
