€1 470 346.45 raised for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute

Since 2010 Mayo Pink Ribbon has organised events to raise much needed funds for breast cancer research at the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. Our main fundraising event is our ANNUAL CHARITY CYCLE which takes place on the Saturday of the May Bank Holiday weekend. In 2024 that date falls on May 4th. 


These routes have proven to be hugely enjoyable and they showcase some of Mayo’s most magnificent scenery.  A huge part of their charm is the warm welcome and support extended to all cyclists by the communities along the way.  OURS IS A COMMUNITY LED, COMMUNITY BASED EVENT.



Our success is due to the hundreds of volunteers throughout Mayo who help us run our events each year.  Our cycle has fast become known as the ‘Friendliest Cycle’ this is entirely due to the effort of all our wonderful volunteers.
