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

The Irish Pilgrimage Trust organised it's first Sponsored Cycle to Lourdes in 1984 to raise much needed funding for the Trust. The Cycle to Lourdes quickly became an established biennial Sponsored Cycle. The Trust receives no state funding and fully relies on volunteer fundraising and private donations to serve children and young people with additional needs.

Cycle 2020 will be the 19th cycle to Lourdes. Membership of our exclusive La Brise Cycling Club is only available to persons who participate in the Cycle to Lourdes.
