The event offers three routes to accommodate all levels of ability: 

The event is fully catered, marshalled and all routes have medical & mechanical support vehicles.. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to participate. The Cycle starts from The Avon Rí in Blessington with refreshments and food provided for all cyclists, before during and after the event.

How to Register

€50 Registration & Payment must be completed before April 27th 2018. Please register on Giv2Go and setup your Registration/Sponsorship Page. We do want you to enjoy your cycle BUT we also ask that you please encourage friends,  family and work colleagues to sponsor you. The objective of the RMHC Cycle4Families is to help us raise much needed funds to build a new 53 bedroom Ronald McDonald House. The €50 registration fee only covers the cost of the day which includes a Cycle Jersey | Lunch | Cycle Snacks & refreshments. So we encourage our participants to raise a minimum of €100.00

What’s it for?

The Annual #Cycle4Families is one of our main fundraising events. This event will provide vital funding for The Ronald McDonald House Charity as we take on the enormous challenge of raising €17 million+ for our new 53 bedroom Ronald McDonald House beside The New Children’s Hospital in 2021.

Going Above & Beyond

We ask you to raise a minimum of €100 or more from family, friends & work colleagues to help us build our New 53 Bedroom house. You don’t even need to cycle!

The Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away-from-home for 20 families of seriously ill children who are hospitalized or undergoing extended treatment at Our Lady’s Children Hospital, Crumlin. Since opening in Nov 04 the House has been “home” to over 3,000 families from all over Ireland. Some have stayed for just a few nights, while others stay for 7 or 8 months. The annual running costs for The Ronald McDonald Houses exceeds €400,000.

We receive no State Funding. It is our intention to build a new 53 Bedroom Ronald McDonald House beside The New National Children’s Hospital
