Ride to The Rugby 2016

We are once again braving the elements to take on the 200+ mile ride from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, arriving in time for the Six Nations’ match Ireland Vs Wales.  Last year, over 60 cyclists rode the 300 miles to Paris to watch Wales beat France in the Stade de France and raised a fantastic £96,000 to support us to put an end to homelessness in Wales. All cyclists taking part receive a ticket to the match, so it’s definitely worth the ride!

We will be leaving Thursday 4 February 2016 from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff and then traveling up to Carmarthen on the first day. We’re then traveling from there to the Pembroke Dock to take the ferry across to Rhosslare on Friday, before traveling up to Dublin on the Saturday in time for a night out celebrating our massive achievement and tickets to the match on Sunday.  We’ll be traveling back then after the match by coach and getting the evening ferry.  All transport, accommodation, match ticket, breakfast and lunch, shirt, is included, so costs to you are just your evening meals, any beverages on an evening you might want, personal travel insurance, your kit and a bike of course.

We ask that everyone who takes part raises a minimum £1,500 and this obviously includes the cost of the trip as well as money for our work to support families at risk of losing their homes or living in bad housing.  We ask to confirm your place that you pay a £200 non-refundable deposit (this is part of the £1,500 total) and then we’ll get you up and running with the fundraising.  The fundraising can seem a little daunting at first, but our fundraising team are happy to chat through with you how to go about raising the money, everyone always does better than they think, and we’ll help in any way we can with this.
