In this short video you will learn more about the Trusts sponsored cycle to Lourdes.

In 1984 The Irish Pilgrimage Trust organised a Sponsored Cycle to Lourdes to raise much needed funding for the Trust. The event quickly became an established biennial Sponsored Cycle. The Trust does not receive annual state funding and therefore fully relies on volunteer fundraising and private donations to serve the children with additional needs.

In March 2018 our Cycle Team completed the 900km journey from Northern Brittany to Lourdes in seven days. This was the Trust's 18th Fundraising Cycle to Lourdes. Membership of our exclusive La Brise Cycling Club is only available to persons who have participated in the Trust's bienniel Cycle to Lourdes. Details about our 2020 Cycle event will be available in early November 2018 when you can contact our Cycle Organiser James McHugh directly on +353 (0)87 250 8074 or at our office on +353 (0)91 796622 or email
