Classic Brit Award winning choir Only Men Aloud have agreed to take up their greatest challenge yet – cycling from Cardiff to Paris, arriving at the Stade de France in time to sing the national anthem at Wales Vs France on Saturday 28th February.
Leaving the Millennium Stadium on Wednesday 25th February, they will be joining over 50 other cyclists all raising money for Shelter Cymru. Ride to the Rugby’s 61 riders will do battle with the elements and ride 300 miles over 4 days to reach the Stade de France, in time for Wales’ Six Nations match.
Last year Shelter Cymru helped 15,500 people with housing problems across Wales, and prevented homelessness in 80% of the cases where it was faced. In addition a further 300,000 people visited the charity’s website looking for advice. Ride to the Rugby is not only a fantastic challenge for all those taking part, but through the fundraising efforts of the cyclists provides crucial funds to support Shelter Cymru’s vison of an end to homelessness across Wales.
The event is supported by the Welsh Rugby Union and Shelter Cymru has linked up with Nation Radio, Gulliver’s Sports Travel, Creigiau Travel, Freight Movement Ltd and Sarn Helen Events.
