Bath Rugby Foundation

The BRF annual cycling challenge – The Giro di Toscana

Bath Rugby Foundation’s annual cycling fundraiser takes place in June and this year the team will once again be heading abroad.

The Giro Di Toscana will see cyclists pedal their way through the Italian countryside, with both a 50-mile and an 80-mile route planned for each day.

Last month the milestone of the 100th rider was reached when John Rew, MD of Scimitar Sports, registered to take part.

Rather than cycling 80 or 50 miles, unpacking, sleeping and then packing again, this year the group of cyclists – which includes Bath Rugby Director of Rugby, Todd Blackadder – will stay in the same place and do three different loops starting and ending at an internationally renowned triathlete resort.

The Giro Di Toscana, which is sponsored by Bath firm The Flying Pig Renovations Company, takes place from June 6 to June 10. It costs £749 to take part, with an additional minimum fundraising target of £650.

Previous fundraising cycle rides organised by Bath Rugby Foundation have seen riders pedal across Ireland, throughout the Normandy countryside and from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

Last year’s continental adventure, the French 400, saw 70 riders raise more than £50,000.
