The Irish Hospice Foundation Cycle Challenge 2020 - Northern Italy
Type of Event : Cycling
From 28th June 2020 to 4th July 2020
Description : This is the challenge of a lifetime, a 550km+ cycle across Northern Italy. Beginning in Bassano del Grappo and ending in Lake Como. Cyclists will take on daily rides of up to 115km and there will be some tough climbs and terrain along the way including the mighty Stelvio Pass with its 48 hairpin bends. This trip takes a huge amount of dedication and training.
The Cycle Challenge is our biggest annual fundraising event and all of the money raised will go to support our Nurses for Night Care programme. This service provides free nursing care in the home for those at end of life and reaches every county in Ireland. Cyclists who have raised funds over the years have played a major role in keeping this vital service going. In the past 12 months there has been a marked increase in the demand for this vital service so this year more than ever fund raised by this event are so important in helping us to provide this service to all those that need it.
