The Challenge:

How far can You Cycle for Breast Cancer Research in 10 Days?

The All Ireland Cycle is a fun and COVID-friendly way to come together and raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. The challenge is to cycle as many kilometres as you can between Aug 12th to 22nd. The cycle is open to everyone – novice, leisure, experienced and club cyclists with a particular emphasis on families cycling together during the holiday period. We will create "live" leaderboards to track which County is winning the All Ireland Cycle, so get on your bike to help your County win the bragging rights!!  


What, How and When?

The All Ireland Cycle is a fun way to come together to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute and help fight a disease that has impacted so many of our lives and that of our families and friends.

The All Ireland Cycle Challenge began as an 8-day event 11 years ago, with people taking part from all over the world. We continue to be inspired by our all who have battled with this terrible disease, by the fundraising our cyclists have done in raising almost €1,000,000 and by the great work done by the research staff at the Lambe Institute NUI Galway.

Now it's your turn to join us and challenge your friends to see who can do the most km's or raise the most money. We will create a ‘LIVE’ All-Ireland Cycle leader board and you'll see each County's kilometre total grow every time a cyclist logs their distances. Getting involved is as easy as 1-2-3!

*Note: Make sure to log your activity by midnight each day but remember, your last cycle must be logged by 3pm on Sunday, August 2lst, 2021.

We are asking you to pledge €25 to take part or a family of four can participate for a discounted €70.

All money raised will go directly to the National Breast Cancer Research Institute a registered Irish charity (RCN): 20025175).  

Once you have completed your challenge we will send you a specially designed snood! You also have the option to buy one of our special event jerseys for €55 including delivery. And we want you to share your photos of taking part by using the hashtag #AllIrelandCycle. 

The Challenge - In numbers

This initiative is part of the annual Pink Ribbon Tour cycle held yearly in support of the National Breast Cancer Research Institute, a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme at the National University of Ireland, Galway. Unfortunately due to the recent Covid pandemic it is not possible to stage the event so the organisers have created the ‘All Ireland Cycle’ which gives everyone a chance to take part and cycle for their county while helping to raise funds for the charity.


All 32 Counties

This is an All-Ireland cycling challenge and we have entrants from all across the island of Ireland, and a number from overseas, ranging from local cycling clubs to individual leisure cyclists. Everyone has declared their preferred County, so for you is it where you live or where you were born?
Spread the word!


Why 100KM?

Cycling over 100km in a 10-day period is regarded as a good challenge for most leisure cyclists. But we know of course that club cyclists might want a bigger challenge and we have set a target of 450km to improve your County’s chance of winning the All-Ireland Cycle!
Every kilometre counts!!


10 Days

Everyone from the leisure cyclist to the avid club cyclist can cover 100km in 10 days. It is challenging but attainable and rewarding. The 10 days also crosses two weekends to give every cyclist the chance of achieving your target
Plenty of time!


25 Euro

When you register for the event you'll be asked to donate €25 to the charity per participant. As an option we will also send you a link to your personal Just Giving fundraising page, which you can share with friends and family to seek their support for your mighty cycling efforts!
Raise more euros than the number of kilometres you cycle!

Target €50,000

We hope to raise at least €50,000 by Sunday Aug 22nd, so Register and warm-up your saddle for this challenge! Your personal triumph on the bike will help the National Breast Cancer Research Institute to support patients going through their own personal journey. Get on your bike!
