Breast Way Round NI

breastwayroundlogosmallBreast Way Round originated in Scotland as an idea to raise money for Macmillan Cancer and also raise the profile of female bikers at the same time.

This took the shape of a 450 mile run over 3 days up the west coast of Scotland. This has now blossomed into an annual event, now in it’s 6th year, in which around 150 bikers, primarily women all wearing bright pink hi-viz vests and mow-hawks on their helmets, joined by a few men wearing decorated bra’s set off on their 3 day, 450 mile run.

So far it has raised a staggering £212,000 for Macmillan and it is hoped that in this 6th year the run (and other events happening during the year) will reach a £250,000 total in 2013!

Lisa Moore has taken part in the Breast Way Round since 2010 and had always dreamed of bringing the experience to Northern Ireland. She says…

I have been personally inspired by this ride and having taken part in it wanted to bring this to life for riders in Northern Ireland. It is a ride that is inspiring, the amazing comradeship you feel on the ride creates new friendships that stays with you and it is something I wished that female riders in Northern Ireland could experience too! At a meeting of the Northern Ireland Female Bikers (NIFB) Facebook group I initially explained about the Breast Way Round ride, I told them of my own experiences, how it had inspired me and of the amazing amount it had raised for Macmillan. All of the girls were interested and thought that having a Northern Irish Breast Way Round run was a great idea!

So Lisa approached Macmillan, who were also keen to come on board with the idea, a committee, with Lisa as Chairperson, was quickly formed and Breast Way Round Norn Iron 2013 (BWRNI) was borne!

  • BWRNI is a unique event in Northern Ireland; it will have up to 100 motorcycles/scooters/trikes taking part, with all different riding abilities being catered for
  • It is being held on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2013
  • The 100 riders will be made up of 80 females, all wearing bright pink tutus, mow-hawks  etc and 20 males who will all be wearing decorated bras throughout the ride
  • The event is a shared experience and we have riders taking part who are from cross community, the LGBT community and also riders who are disabled
  • The ride is approx 250 miles, being completed over 2 days.
  • The run will be stopping at Newcastle, Enniskillen and Derry/Londonderry on Saturday and Portrush, Joey’s Bar and Carnfunnock on Sunday, so as riders can hold collections for Macmillan and have a bit of fun with the general public while dressed up 🙂
  • It is hoped that the run will raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Northern Ireland
