This is my fourth Dallaglio Cycle Slam, and the one that means the most to me!

I will be cycling 1,861.2km through Spain, France, Mallorca and Ibiza, climbing 32285m along the way!

The Dallaglio Cycle Slam 2016 is raising money for a project I set up over a year ago called RugbyWorks. 

RugbyWorks uses rugby to transform the aspirations of young people: 14 to 16 year olds at increased risk of long-term unemployment, criminality and imprisonment. We aim to make a profound impact on the marginalised lives of those excluded from mainstream education – increasing self-worth, improving life skills and boosting employability.

Working in Pupil Referral Units, we give young people the practical support, experience and ability that helps them believe and invest in the possibility of a better future. Often for the very first time.

We don’t expect that to happen overnight. Which is why it’s important we’re central to each school’s curriculum – so we can build long-term relationships. A small group of just 10 young people per school get to know us over 30 weeks per year, for two years.  We currently do this in London, Newcastle, Bristol and the Rhondda Valley.

Why do we do this? Because we know there are a huge range of factors leading to students being excluded from mainstream education. And, whatever that reason, we don’t believe that should signal exclusion from mainstream society too.

Although cycling the Pyrenees and Mallorca will be a challenge, it not nearly as tough as some of the challenges our young people face on a daily basis, which is why I am determined to raise £1m from this event, so that I can reach even more young people nationally.

Please donate generously so we can make positive changes to more young people's lives.

Many thanks for your support.
