Less than 48 hours left of the Road To Twickenham challenge!

With less than 48 hours to go until our riders reach their destination, we look forward to welcoming our riders to Twickenham Stadium.

In just six days our riders have cycled all the way from Newcastle to Bath, via eight Premiership Rugby clubs, covering over 556 miles!

Here’s how they have been getting on so far:

Day 6

Our riders have travelled another gruelling 91 miles today, finishing at Bath Rugby. Everyone is excited for the final push tomorrow as they bring the trophy even closer to Twickenham Stadium for Saturday Premiership Final.

Day 5

Despite it being the hottest day of the ride so far, our team remained in high spirits as they passed iconic landmarks like the Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Day 3

Day three of our journey was a huge success as our team of riders conquered another 108 miles – getting closer and closer to Twickenham Stadium for the Gallagher Premiership Final.

After enjoying some sightseeing today visiting three Premiership Rugby stadiums, our group finished at the home of Northampton Saints where they had a well earned rest in preparation for day four, the halfway point is in sight!

Day 2

Our riders faced a longer journey than on day one, stopping off at Sale Rugby club before finishing in Uttoxeter. A steep incline met our riders very early on, but a number of cheery day riders provided an important uplift for the core group.

Day 1

Starting in the early hours of the morning at the home of Newcastle Falcons, the group began a 107 mile journey through the scenic Yorkshire Dales.

Despite the uphill windy conditions, spirits were high as they set off to raise money for vulnerable children and young people in the UK & Ireland.
