Dragons BR Poster 2017

The Dragons Charity Bike Ride is an enjoyable and social 2-day cycling challenge that invites rugby fans (and non-rugby fans) to come together and cycle from Pendine to Newport with an overnight stop halfway.

On Day 1 riders start from Pendine and cycle to Swansea (67 miles) before an overnight stop at the Village Hotel, Swansea Marina. On Day 2 riders cycle from Swansea to Rodney Parade (70 miles). 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.

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

“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.”
