What is the #HospiceBikeTour?
The #HospiceBikeTour is a charity bike ride which aims to offer amateur cyclists an incredible bike experience while raising funds for people suffering from incurable diseases and/or life-limiting conditions. Usually the itinerary starts from Chisinau, where the Hospices of Hope Moldova office is located, and ends in Brasov or Bucharest, at one of the in-bed units of Hospice Casa Sperantei – both are part of the same Hospices of Hope network.

The first two #HospiceBikeTour editions linked organisations in the Hospices of Hope Moldova (Chisinau) and Romania (Brasov & Bucharest) networks, each of them running for five days in June. If in 2016 the route had a length of 563 km and took us on the hills of Oituz before arriving in Brasov and Bucharest – in 2017 we decided to make it even more spectacular.
The 13 bikers who took part in the second edition had the opportunity to visit the charming Lake Bicaz, after the elderly Carpathians until the end of the tour at the Casa Sperantei Hospice Center in Bucharest. The route in 2017 was not only more exciting, but also longer with cyclists going for a total of 728 km for 5 days.
The events had a great impact, being highly publicized both in the press in the Republic of Moldova and in Romania. At the same time, thanks to sponsors and donations received from cyclists, we managed to collect approximately 25.000 Euro that went to the development of palliative care services in the Republic of Moldova.
The 2018 edition was a special one, attended by 22 cyclists that travelled through a fairy tale from the Hospices of Hope Moldova headquarters in Chisinau to the Hospice Casa Speranţei in Brasov (Romania). The route was more than 750 km long and went through charming places, giving participants the opportunity to admire the most beautiful landscapes in Moldova and Romania.
