Rugby World Cup 2023

Head for Lyon
19 - 25 September 2023

Cycle your way to Rugby World Cup 2023

Cycle from London to Lyon with Tour de France winner, Geraint Thomas.

Create a lifetime of storytelling by participating in this unique, MSG exclusive charity bike ride to watch Wales play Australia at Rugby World Cup 2023. Welsh rugby legends Shane Williams, Ian Gough, Tony Copsey, and Carl Hayman all join ‘G’ on this cycling adventure, commencing at the famed Old Deer Park in Richmond (home to London Welsh RFC) and concluding in Lyon.

With logistical and nutritional support from Rouleur, 40 cyclists will join former Wales forward, Alix Popham, Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas and Team INEOS Grenadiers’ Luke Rowe from London to Lyon, raising funds and awareness for Head for Change.

Across either a 5-day or 3-day charity cycle ride, raise both your heartbeat and funds for charity in the most exclusive company, lunching at rugby clubs en route and dining with your hosts each evening at appointed hotels.

Celebrate your arrival in Lyon by watching the tournament’s showpiece pool fixture as Wales take on Australia for the third Rugby World Cup tournament in a row. Can Wales continue their hot streak over the Antipodean men in gold, or will the Aussies return with a vengeance from their Tokyo 2019 setback?

We’re offering another great equalizer for this epic challenge: electric assist. An e-bike can provide an extra boost to your own pedal power, so you can ride longer distances, tackle tougher climbs, and maintain a faster pace in the company of family or friends who may cycle at a different level.  Enquire with our team for further details.

"After two years of putting various travel plans on hold it felt so good to be back overseas. We knew we were in safe hands with MSG Tours who kept us up to date throughout the who the process with any covid related changes. Dubai 7’s had a fantastic festival like atmosphere with so much to see and do, all of which was seamlessly organised. It was great to enjoy the rugby (and the winter sun!) with a cracking bunch of people."
