Join The Great Rugby Cycle Ride 2020

The Great Rugby Cycle 2020 will cover over 1000 miles in an anti-clockwise direction around Ireland in eleven days, taking in some of the finest scenery Ireland has to offer. The peloton will be joined along the route by rugby legends, sporting stars and celebrities from TV and Film to raise awareness and funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

The Inaugural Great Rugby Cycle 2019 covered 1133 miles in March 2019 from John O’Groats to Land’s End in support of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.  

As a warm-up to the 2020 event, some of the group who took part in the John O’Groats challenge, cycled the length of Ireland from Mizen Head to Malin Head (370 miles) in 36 hours.
