CROSS Rugby Legends Cycle 2016


The Annual Cross Rugby Cycle will take place between the Sunday 4th and Thursday 8th of September 2016. This will be our fifth year in operation and we are contactingyou in the hope of expanding the numbers taking part. As you probably know, this charity cycle was first set up by the Paul, David and Richard Wallace in conjunction with Trinity College Dublin and St James Hospital to raise funds for research into Oesophageal and Stomach Cancer. To date, due to the the enormous efforts of the founders and supporters we have raised over €320,000. This has enabled us to fund research and to purchase essential equipment. The cycle takes place in stages along the stunning Wild Atlantic Way over five days. Cyclists can do one stage, a few stages or the entire route, and all abilities are catered for. Cyclists are asked to raise €340 for CROSS. All accommodation, meals, snacks, 2016 Legends Cycling kit and transfers are supplied by us. We pride ourselves on providing excellent quality support to all our cyclists. We are lucky to have wonderful support from Irish and International Rugby Stars including the Wallace Brothers, Mick Galwey, Paddy Johns, Eric Elwood and Malcolm O’Kelly amongst others. Our international supporters have included John Smit, Phil Kearns, David Campese, Colin Charvis, Rob Wainwright, Peter Winterbottom, and Anton Oliver. All of these players have cycled part or all of the route and have contributed enormously to the fun and the success of the cycle.
As we plan for our fifth year we wish to use the cycle both to fund-raise and to showcase the Irish Rugby Community in the run-up to Irelands’ bid for the Rugby World Cup in 2020. Your club’s involvement would be invaluable to us and to Irish Rugby.
We would be most grateful if you could support us by circulating the links to the CROSS Rugby Legends Cycle 2016 to your members and players both through word-of-mouth and through the social media & newsletter The following links will hopefully provide you with detailed information about the cycle and all that it entails.
