Wicklow Mountains Cycle Challenge is an annual event organised by St James’s Hospital Foundation with all proceeds going to St James’s Hospital, Dublin. Since 2016, the event has raised over €100,000 with all proceeds used to purchase new equipment for the hospital.
The event starts and finishes on the stunning grounds of Russborough House and there are 2 routes to choose from:
50km – Brings cyclists on a beautiful looped tour of Blessington Lakes before returning back to Russborough House.
100km – Described as “The toughest 100km in Wicklow”, this is a much more demanding route taking cyclists up some of the most notorious climbs in the Wicklow mountains including, Sally Gap, Shay Elliott & Slieve Maan.
