Ride of the Lions: The Triple Crown 2014
After their inaugural trip to Australia in 2013, a group of British and Irish Lions have set up The Triple Crown 2014. The challenge will see 150 riders take to their bikes, cycling almost 1000km route from Twickenham Stadium in London, to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and finishing at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, all to raise money for Walking With The Wounded.
The Ride of the Lions began in 2013, with a group of ex British and Irish Lions rugby stars and friends riding 1000km from the Etihad Stadium in Melbourne to the ANZ Stadium in Sydney between the 2nd and 3rd Lions Tests with the match ball, culminating in a wealth of public interest and positive feedback for the team when they arrived on the day of the 3rd Test (in perfect time to witness the superb victory!).
Wanting to tap into the enthusiasm surrounding the event, but not wanting to wait until 2017, The Triple Crown 2014 was born, with riders splitting into teams of 15, each skippered by one of the ten Lions and including wounded soldiers. Representatives from Walking With The Wounded will also take part and participants can even request which Lion they want to be riding with – nothing is guaranteed but early registration certainly betters the chances!
