Doddie Weir MBE was diagnosed with MND in 2017. Doddie is a friend of mine as we both grew up playing rugby for Melrose RFC. In 2018 I arranged a golf event at Royal Belfast and in 2019 arranged the Great Rugby Cycle. Each year I will arrange another event to support my friend, team mate and legend in his heroic work through his My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.

2020 Great Rugby Cycle

5th - 15th April 2020

The Great Rugby Cycle will be completed annually with the Peloton cycling round the Island of Ireland from 5th – 15thApril 2020. We finish with a sporting legends golf event at Royal Belfast on 16th April.

Like 2019 we will have a number of Rugby Legends doing the whole event. From the 2019 cohort Carl Hayman, Ollie Philipps, Iwan Tukalo & Bryan Redpath are keen to support again with the possibility of getting Irish legends getting involved too. Watch this space...

For more info on the 2020 event, to sign up for one or more stages, or the whole damn lot, enter on our event page below. 

Thanks to the Atlas Foundation, founded by Doddie's great friend, Jason Leonard OBE, we can raise money without any admin fees, and all the profits go straight through to Doddie'5 Foundation
