Consultants from specialist PH centres across the UK and Ireland will cycle from the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, all the way to The Mater Hospital in Dublin (via a ferry across the North Sea!)
Recognising that the journey with PH can be very hard for patients and their families, they want to show their support by travelling their own challenging journey and raising essential funds at the same time.
The epic cycle will cover around 250 miles and take three days. The group will depart on Thursday 28th September, arriving in Dublin on Saturday 30th.
Meet the cyclists!

About PH and the PHA UK
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is rare, serious and misunderstood. It has a huge impact on people’s lives, and the PHA UK is dedicated to reducing that burden through support, advice, information and advocacy. They raise awareness and fund research to provide better treatments, with the hope of one day finding a cure for this devastating disease.
The PHA UK receives no government funding, so every penny donated plays a vital role in helping them support people to live better lives with PH.
