Dallaglio RugbyWorks is an intensive, long-term skills development programme based on rugby, through which we aim to get teenagers outside of mainstream education into sustained education, employment or training.

Dallaglio RugbyWorks was delighted to once again work with Intrinsic Financial Services on their annual charity cycle. This year 48 cyclists including Lawrence Dallaglio, Rachel Roxburgh, Chris Powell and Phil Hannah from the Dallaglio RugbyWorks team took on the challenge of cycling from Geneva to Lyon.

The first day’s cycling was from Geneva to the village of Talloires and shores of Lake Annecy. Although this was day was not the longest in distance, it made up for it with the rolling terrain as the riders ascended the flanks of La Saleve. Many of the cyclists took the opportunity to relax aching muscles in the lake before tackling the second day on the bike.

An early start was well worth it as riders took in the beautiful scenery around Lake Annecy before climbing into the heart of the Bauges Mountains reaching over 1000m. The decent into the town of Chambery bought day two to an end with riders looking ahead to the final and furthest day of the challenge.

The final leg of the journey to Lyon saw riders complete 125km and the day got off to a bang with the ascent up the Col de L’Epine where riders were able to enjoy an incredible view of the Alps from the summit. Following the descent and cycling on the banks of the River Rhone all riders arrived in Lyon to celebrate a successful ride completed.

There has been an incredible fundraising effort from all those who have taken part in this year’s Intrinsic Ride and it is set to raise over £60,000 for Dallaglio RugbyWorks. We would like to thank Intrinsic Financial Services, and all the riders for making this year’s ride such a success.
