The Irish Times reports that 26 year old Shane Finn, of County Kerry, Ireland, today completed a 36 day bicycle journey that began at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and ended at Brooklyn Bridge Park, where he was greeted by his cousin, Mary Evans, who flew over from Ireland for the event. Mr. Finn undertook the transcontinental challenge, as he has several marathon runs, to raise funds for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland; spina bifida hydrocephalus is a condition with which Ms. Evans was born. See photos in the story linked above. There is a U.S. organization that also raises funds for the same purpose: see here.
