A cycle pilgrimage from the birthplace of rugby football to where William Webb Ellis is buried in Menton, France.

A core group of cyclists will be continuing on from Twickenham all the way via the Stade de France to Menton. This 1,000 mile challenge will take these hardy cyclists 14 days and will be to raise funds and awareness for:

  • Our own 1823 bursary fund which is in honour of Webb Ellis who was a bursary student. The bursary will be used to fund a means tested places(s) for child (ren), who show a talent in rugby football, to be educated at Rugby School.
  • Matt Hampson Foundation

All amounts raised through donations will be split 50/50

Updates of the cycle tour will be shared on our social media channels @rugbyschool1567 #rugby200
