The Cycle

The Cycle4haiti is an annual cycling event open to all ages and cycling abilities, in which a group of 100+ cyclists pedal across the country from Dublin to Galway over two days. The cycle takes place every year on the May Bank Holiday weekend, and it’s a great way to get fit, meet new people and enjoy a tough but achievable challenge.

The cycle starts at the GPO on O’Connell Street on Saturday morning. The group cycles together to Athlone on Saturday, stopping every 25km for refreshments and bike servicing. Saturday night is spent in Athlone with a BBQ, drinks and games. On Sunday morning (with slightly sore heads) the group cycles to Galway, finishing the weekend with celebrations, trophies and more food and drink.

Throughout the cycle all cyclists stick together in a single peloton, and the group is fully supported by a servicing and ambulance crew.

Cycle Countdown








The Cause

The Soul of Haiti Foundation was established when a group of entrepreneurs and finalists of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year travelled to Haiti in 2007. These entrepreneurs set up a number of small humanitarian projects in the South of Haiti. The entrepreneurs returned to Haiti in 2008 and subsequently established a Board of Directors to carry out the Foundations mission.

The Route

The peloton cycles as one big group, starting at the GPO on O’Connell Street in Dublin. Saturday sees the group cycle to Athlone, with regular stops along the way. After a rest night with BBQ and beers, the peloton cycles from Athlone to Galway on the Sunday.

Why Cycle4haiti

A proven team builder

Cycle4haiti is a great team-building event. Training before the cycle gives you and your colleagues the chance to work together and drive each other to succeed. Team challenges throughout the weekend instil a competitive element, encouraging teams to work together and compete with others. So if you and your colleagues are looking for a challenge, just enter a team from your workplace to join in the fun, get fit and raise funds!

Morale was really high after finishing the cycle, it has brought our team to a completely new level. I now know that there is nothing that we wouldn’t do for each other. We have each other’s back.

“Great event,” “great team-building,” “really rewarding,” “can’t wait for next year,” were quotes typical of our staff that took part in Cycle4haiti.  It was a massive hit with our team; people are still talking about it.
