Rob Wainwright and some fellow cycling dafties plan a 500 mile cycle in 48hrs from Twickenham to Murrayfield with a match ball for the Calcutta Cup game on the 8th of February in support of 2 wounded Lions mates of Rob's from the '97 tour of South Africa, Tom Smith and Doddie Weir.
The departure will be from Twickenham around lunchtime on the 6/2/20, the route north plans to have stops at some notable clubs, hopefully including London Scottish, Northampton Saints, Darlington Mowden Park RFC, Newcastle Falcons and Jedforest before the final push to Murrayfield.
A peloton of 6 cyclists and a support crew of 6 will be moving day and night to get to Murrayfield in plenty of time for the big match kickoff. It is likely there will be some familiar faces joining along the way and hoped many will turn out to support and ride sections with the team as we pass your patch.
The aim is to beat the £65k we raised last year for MN5DF. 100% of all funds raised will go to the charities, and this year we will be splitting our fundraising between Doddie's MN5DF and Tom Smith's chosen charitable foundation, "40tude".
40tude is an innovative charity that raises funds for pioneering research projects targeted at the early diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer at St Mark’s, the UK's national bowel hospital. 40tude also promotes awareness of the importance of being screened early for colon cancer.
St Mark's Hospital in Harrow was founded in 1835 as the world’s first specialist bowel disease hospital. It has an extensive research and education programme in the diagnosis and treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Colon Cancer.
