Led by Doddie Weir’s former teammate Rob Wainwright and world-record holder cyclist Mark Beaumont, 200 riders will be involved in delivering the match ball between Principality Stadium in Cardiff and Murrayfield in Edinburgh.
Over a period of 55 hours, the cyclists will cover 555 miles in a bid to raise funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Ali MacLachlan, UK Director at The Wood Foundation, said:
“We are delighted to once again be supporting this feat of endurance for an incredibly worthwhile cause.
“Doddie Weir remains an inspiration and the legacy he created in terms of MND awareness and fundraising is exceptional.
“Best of luck to Rob, Mark, and the team on this journey.”
