Ride to the Rugby is the definition of team work, camaraderie and blood, sweat and tears! Being part of a group of 50 riders where you'll all share the same experience cycling 217 miles in brave conditions all while fundraising will really make a difference to a Ty Hafan family - this will be a memory that will stay with you forever. The event is slightly different to previous years where all the riding will now take place in France, which allows us to explore more of the country which has always been the favourite part of all riders who have experienced the event previously.

At times I felt like stopping, but then I remembered why I started and who I was doing it for - Ride to the Rugby 2019 participant

The cost to go on the trip is £1,500, £1,000 of this covers the event costs and £500 is sponsorship. Your £200 non refundable registration fee goes towards this. It is up to you how you raise the funds to cover the cost, just remember if you are fundraising the full amount then you must inform your sponsors that the £1,000 is to cover the cost of you going on the trip - this must be clear to your supporters
