Thanks for taking the time to visit the official 2018 UK Red Ride to Wembley for RL Cares JustGiving page.

On Monday August 20, 27 intrepid riders with Rugby League in their blood will set out from Old Trafford, Manchester, bound for Wembley Stadium and the biggest date in the sport's calendar - the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final.

Avoiding roads whenever and wherever possible, the riders will cycle 300 tough miles through the heart of England over the next five days.

UK Red Fire and Security have once again agreed to be the headline sponsors of the ride, which is again being supported by our partners All Sport Insurance.  Other partners include Spec UK Ltd and Yorkshire Boilers.

The ride is scheduled to end at the Wembley Legends statue on the stadium concourse on the afternoon of Friday August 24 - 24 hours before the Challenge Cup final kicks off.

The group features some household names from the world of Rugby League, including many retired internationals who are doing their bit to help a charity that helps so many of their contemporaries. 

Former players Gareth Ellis, Robbie Hunter-Paul, Andy Lynch, Mick Cassidy, Chev Walker, Paul Highton and Nathan McAvoy are all on the ride while ex-Great Britain star Keith Senior will be driving one of the support vehicles.

Sponsors, fans and RL Cares members of staff are also riding the great adventure in its second year and doing what they can to exceed the £20,000 total raised for the charity in 2017.

Most of the riders have their own Justgiving page linked to the one - if you would like to sponsor an individual rider, please visit their page. Or if you would simply like to make a donation to the ride in recognition of the outstanding work done by RL Cares, please donate on here.

Any support you can provide is really appreciated. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to Rugby League Cares. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
