Covering 1,238 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End in March 2019, The Great Rugby Cycle is a charity cycling event to raise funds and awareness for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
And the peloton of riders will be stopping off at Franklin’s Gardens next Tuesday (12 March) before the Northampton Saints Foundation hosts a Q&A evening at Stowe School alongside the riders, with Chris Boyd, Carl Hayman, Danny Grewcock, Bryan Redpath and other legends of the game in attendance.
The Great Rugby Cycle – that began on Monday – is zig-zagging across Scotland and England this month, covering 1,200 miles from John O’Groats to Land’s End, stopping off at golf and rugby clubs along the way.
And the rugby family has been very supportive of the ride, with greats such as Scott Hastings, Peter Winterbottom, Neil Back, Bryan Redpath, Rory Lawson, Thom Evans, Carl Hayman, Craig Chalmers, Max Evans, Kelly Brown and former Saints Martin Bayfield and Matt Dawson either dusting down their clubs or jumping on a bike.
The riders will arrive at Franklin’s Gardens around 4.30pm on Tuesday before heading to Stowe School for a 7.30pm start at the Q&A event. To book a seat at this event and support the charity, please contact the Northampton Saints Foundation Head Matt Goode at [email protected] or on 07803625847.
The peloton will then depart Franklin’s Gardens at 9am on Wednesday morning, heading out to Towcester and beyond. You can find out more information about The Great Rugby Cycle and My Name’5 Doddie Foundation by CLICKING HERE.
