The Dragons Charity Bike Ride 2017 builds on the huge success of the inaugural event last summer in which 29 riders took part to raise over £12,000 for St David’s Hospice Care. The charity looks after 3,000 patients across the Dragons Region in their hospices, day care centres and at home.

The Dragons Charity Bike Ride 2017 involves two days of riding with an overnight stop. On Day 1, Friday 16th June, riders start from Pendine and travel to Swansea (67 miles) before a stay at the Village Hotel, Swansea Marina. On Day 2, Saturday 17th June, riders travel from Swansea to Rodney Parade (70 miles).

Dragons CEO Stuart Davies said:

“We were delighted with what the Dragons Charity Bike Ride achieved in the summer. We were able to raise a significant amount of money for St David’s Hospice Care while bringing together rugby and non-rugby fans for a really enjoyable weekend of sporting and social activity.”

Former Newport RFC and Newport Gwent Dragons Captain Jason Forster, who took part in the 2016 Ride, added:

“All riders really enjoyed the experience of doing the ride over two days in the summer. The overnight stop made for a really sociable occasion. We reflected on a hard day in the saddle while looking ahead to the challenge of the second day of riding.”

Friends and family are encouraged to welcome riders back to Rodney Parade at the end of the ride on Saturday 17th June. The ‘Party at the Parade’ event will host a presentation, music, food and drink.
