Inca Cycle 2020


As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to present challenges, we are absolutely committed to supporting the ongoing recovery journeys of our wounded, injured and sick, and their families. Our teams are working hard to adapt our services in response to the challenges presented by Coronavirus, whilst keeping our beneficiaries, colleagues, volunteers, supporters and partners safe.


We’re closely monitoring the situation, in constant contact with event providers and continually reviewing our plans in line with Government and NHS advice. We’re working to keep this page updated with any news about event dates and bookings as soon as we hear.


In the meantime, if you have a question about your event booking, you will be contacted by your event provider but if not, please do contact them direct. If you have a question about your fundraising for Help for Heroes, please email our team on


Be assured we are absolutely committed to supporting the ongoing recovery journeys of our wounded, injured and sick, and their families. Thank you for your incredible support and patience at this time.


Machu Picchu, the legendary Lost City of the Incas, is one of the most iconic sights in South America. Cycling through the heartland of the Incas, away from the crowds, is an unforgettable way to reach it.

The Help for Heroes Events Team will work closely with you throughout your fundraising journey and share helpful tips and advice every step of the way. You will receive our comprehensive Fundraising Guide to help you get started, along with monthly fundraising ideas straight to your inbox!


Although sponsorship from your friends and family is amazing, getting creative and coming up with other ways to fundraise will provide a massive boost to your fundraising. You can do this by planning events throughout the months leading up to your challenge and for three months after the end of it – plenty of time to reach that magic target. Your fundraising journey is all part of the experience, so relish it!


It’s easier if you break your fundraising down into smaller monthly chunks and plan an event or activity for each month to hit that amount.


  • Your first target is £3640 which is due 01/08/2020. Take this amount and divide it by the number of months you have until that date. You now have your monthly target.

  • Plan how you can make that monthly target. For some great fundraising ideas contact the Help for Heroes Events Team.

  • Your final fundraising target of £4,550 isn’t due until 17/11/2020, two weeks after your return.
