The Great Rugby Cycle 2020 follows the huge success of 2019's ride from John O'Groats to Lands End.
In 2020 we take on Ireland. Cycling round the island of Ireland from 5th to 15th April, and finishing with a sporting legends golf day on 16th April at Royal Belfast.
Rugby Legends will ride with us for the whole journey. Join us too!

"Doddie Weir MBE was diagnosed with MND in 2017. Doddie is a friend of mine as we both grew up playing rugby for the same team, Melrose RFC. In 2018 I arranged a golf event at Royal Belfast and in 2019 the first Great Rugby Cycle to support his My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. In 2020 I am teaming up with the Atlas Foundation, founded by Jason Leonard OBE, a great friend of Doddie's, to raise more money for Doddie's Foundation"  Stuart Thom

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