Today, one year ago, Terry finished his first journey on the Bike in aid of ZGBTST.

The difference was,
- It was longer, 1400 miles in 13 days
- He had friends join him for 2 days at a time and it was around the coast to coast of Ireland.
- There was no candles
- The weight of the bike was less
- Terrys Mental Health itself had yet to crash

We thought, this time last year, Terry had completed a mammoth journey, it was not until Friday that we truly realised what he had achieved for the community of Northern Ireland during this years 11 day, 1200 mile journey.

Terrys bike on some mornings weighed an extreme amount and was physically hard to manover on the roads, this is because he was carrying the candles which were to be placed in each town.

Terry, after suffering from a mental breakdown and being admitted into the Ross Thompson, came up with the idea of lighting up Northern Ireland whilst in the unit. It was then he felt he could do more for the community. Make a cycle mean something - make it harder so that not everyone could do what he could do.

In 2019 - Terry made a cycle, touch the hearts of thousands. He made it not about himself, but about the community. In 2018 - no one welcomed him home except his family.
In 2019 - the whole of Northern Ireland wished for his safe return, followed his journey and people lined towns to greet him, cried when they met him and the streets of Coleraine were lit up to bring him home.

The Cycle for Suicide was for everyone - the Cycle for Suicide achieved something that was never done before. The Cycle for Suicide made a difference.
