Annual Cycle Challenge

The annual Cycle Challenge took place from Sunday 26th June – Saturday 2nd July this year, with a stunning 550km route starting in Bassano del Grappo and continuing along the stunning scenery of Lake Como. This area is acclaimed for the remarkable scenery: the snow-capped peaks of Gavia, the shores of Lake Como, stunning nature reserves, breezy river trails and the ‘Stelvio Pass Option’ – arguably the purest, most exhilarating, mountain playground accessible to a cyclist.

We would like to thank Billy Parker and Eileen Byrne for creating this highlights video from the 2022 trip. We also extend a huge thanks to everyone that took part and made 2022 such a special year.

The Cycle Challenge is our largest and longest standing fundraising event. Since it was established in 2009 the event has raised over €2 million for the IHF. With the funds raised, over 4,500 families have been cared for by our Nurses for Night Care service with over 13,000 nights of care delivered.  

We thank our friends Kingspan, our event ambassadors Paul and Evelyn Kimmage, our tour company Cycling Safaris and all of the wonderful participants that have taken on the challenge over the years.
