Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal
We are the Birmingham Irish Cycle Appeal, a Community Amateur Sports Club. Every year we bring together a wonderful bunch of cyclists and complete an extreme cycling challenge to raise as much money as possible for charities and great causes. BICA has been raising money for over 2 decades and has raised a total of over £1,000,000 in total. Are you interested in joining the BICA family?
This year we are raising money for:
Midwifery Bereavement Facilities (Birmingham Women’s & UHCW Hospitals)
Kingsbury SEN Academy
Laura Lynn Hospice
Buncrana Children's Charity
This Year's Ride:
2023 - Ireland West Coast
This July BICA will be completing a challenging 600 miles ride along the west coast of Ireland. Over 30 cyclists and a great backup team will be involved for the ride to be completed. The ride will begin at Mizen Head and finish 8 days later at Malin Head.
Last Year's Ride:
2022 - Cyprus
In the October of 2022, BICA completed its 21st bike ride around Cyprus. Over 5 days of cycling, 385 miles were completed around the country. We tacked the Troodos mountains which were over 6,000 ft above sea level and together raised over £100,000 for some amazing charities and causes.
"Reflecting on my incredible 10-year journey with BICA fills my heart with immense gratitude and joy. Joining this remarkable community of cyclists was one of the best decisions I ever made, and it has shaped my life in ways I never could have imagined."
"Joining BICA as a new cyclist has been a life-changing experience. The welcoming community, supportive riders, and shared sense of purpose have made my first year unforgettable. I've grown as a cyclist, found lifelong friends, and discovered the joy of making a positive impact. BICA is more than just a cycling club—it's a family that I'm grateful to be a part of."
"I can't express enough how grateful I am to have been part of the BICA family. The experience was truly extraordinary. From the moment I joined, I was welcomed with open arms and instantly felt a sense of belonging. The camaraderie and support among the cyclists were unmatched."
