The epic 48-hour challenge saw Mark Beaumont, Rob Wainwright and their teammates cycle 500 miles from Murrayfield to Cardiff’s Principality Stadium, delivering the match ball for the Wales vs Scotland Six Nations Fixture Calcutta Cup.
The endeavour was in aid of the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation, which is fundraising for research into Motor Neurone Disease, as well as supporting those living with the condition. The Wood Foundation contributed £10,000 to the fundraising total.
World record cyclist Mark Beaumont said:
“A huge thank you to The Wood Foundation for once again supporting the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. This support cornerstones a massive amount of fundraising from the hundreds of participants in the Doddie Aid campaign and in particular the cyclists riding to the Six Nations match.
