In a unique collaboration between three of the West Country's leading rugby clubs, Bath Rugby Foundation, Bristol Rugby Community Foundation and Gloucester Rugby have joined forces to launch ‘Break The Cycle’ for 2015, and it’s bigger and better than ever before.
Now in its fifth year, the 110-mile ride – the biggest rugby charity cycling event in the South-West - will see over five-hundred cyclists from Bristol, Bath and Gloucester come together for the unique, one-day fundraising challenge with all funds raised going to the Club’s three Community operations.
The event, which takes place on Sunday, 14 June 2015, sees participants cycle a 110-mile route between Bath’s Recreation Ground, Gloucester’s Kingsholm and Bristol Rugby’s new home at Ashton Gate Stadium.
General Manager of Bath Rugby Foundation, Mandy Gardner, said: “Bath Rugby Foundation is delighted to be working alongside old rivals Gloucester and Bristol Rugby to raise funds for our local communities; this collaborative approach will allow the Foundation to continue our education and inclusion programmes throughout Bath, Wiltshire and North East Somerset.”
