Congratulations to the following Team Captains & Team Members who were nominated for their Greatness!

Team Captain Nominations
Person nominated: Andrew Foley

You were nominated because… He was very encouraging and a dedicated team leader

You were nominated by… Doroteja Bogdanovic

_____________________________________________________________

Person nominated: Hannah pfaff

You were nominated because… She encouraged us to cycle, arranged our trips for us and did all the admin. Without her we wouldn’t have cycled so much

You were nominated by… Hannah Fothergill

_____________________________________________________________

Person nominated:  Jordan Broders

You were nominated because… He was a very good team captain, encouraging us to get on that bike as much as possible and not just for the competition but to enjoy it. He was very good at organizing extra cycle trips to different activities across the Waterford city that he planned for us and 5 or 6 of our friends who were not involved in the cycle challenge but he still encouraged them to join in on some of our trips. e.g bowling, pitch and put etc.  I think he deserves a prize for this as he is in his fourth year writing a thesis and concentrating on his studies and still found the time to be a great team captain. Respect for the man!

You were nominated by… Tony Mc Donnell

Person nominated: Kate Kiely

You were nominated because… Kate is a wonderful person, and above that, is a wonderful cyclist. After coming a long way from Waterford and leaving her beauty of a bike at home she was willing to use my old bike as her vehicle for this challenge. She braved the Dublin roads on a mountain bike, she cycled through sunshine, through rain, through wind! She motivated the team. Even at the time when we saw the leaderboard score left us by the wayside she encouraged us to keep going and to pedal our hearts out. She is a fantastic person, (who has a very questionable laptop)and is in need of a lovely new tablet.

You were nominated by… Therese Chambers

Person nominated: Kirsten Nelson de Burca

You were nominated because… Kirsten was literally the driving force of our team, offering support, enthusiasm and encourage every pedal of the way! Not a day went by without some cycling related pun or kind words or hilarious snapchat of her and her bike battling the elements. She led by example and is truly an inspirational captain who deserves recognition.

Person nominated: Ziyanda Shologu

You were nominated because… It took a lot for her to start cycling again because of the amount of fear she had.. but after getting comfortable with cycling again, she got us all motivated to cycle all around Sligo to the places we couldn’t have walked to.. I think that she deserves to win something for her courage and braveness!!

You were nominated by… Zaira Arshad

_____________________________________________________________

Person nominated: Laura McKay

You were nominated because… She was so enthusiastic about the entire challenge, she was even encouraging other people to get involved! Any chance she had she was on the bike, going to the shops, going from training to college and back again, even going from one end of campus to the other, she was never without her wheels!  There was always a fun message left for me on Facebook reminding me to get on the bike and to keep up with my trips, even without the challenge she is normally trying to persuade someone to use a bike to get to college, for both fitness and the environments sake! I think that she definitely deserves for her determination and enthusiasm to be recognised!
