Darlington Mowden Park R.F.C and SG Petch have teamed up to organise two charity bike rides to raise funds for the ‘My Name’5 Doddie Foundation’, set up by Doddie Weir (the former British & Irish Lions, Scotland and Newcastle Falcons rugby star), who was diagnosed with MND in 2017. The rides will take place on Sunday 5th May 2019 starting and finishing at the Mowden Park Arena in Darlington. The 100km will start at 8.00 am and the 50km at 10.00 am with routes around North Yorkshire. There will be family activities taking place at the stadium in the afternoon.
The idea was the brainchild of Peter Rees, an SG Petch customer and Mowden member whose friend Roland is also suffering from MND and was a keen cyclist – hence the event is called Roland’s Ride.
The cost of entry is £50 payable online as per the application and this money will go to the foundation; each participant will also receive a specially made cycling jersey* at the start of the event as shown below.
To take part in this event simply make your ride selection, fill out your details and pay your entry fee. Every rider gets a jersey.
* NOTE : The cutoff point to receive your cycling jersey on the day is February 28th 2019
Full details and entry form can be found here.
