A DENBIGHSHIRE managing director has used pedal power once again to support a worthy cause.

For the second year in a row, Ruthin's Steve Morgan, the managing director of the P&A Group took part in the Doddie Cup 555.

This was an epic 555-mile cycle challenge to raise funds for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

He joined Ruthin collegue Rob Boyns on the epic journey.

The team, comprising fellow ex-rugby players and cycling enthusiasts from Ruthin and the surrounding areas, set off from the Principality Stadium in Cardiff to cycle to Murrayfield in Edinburgh, arriving just before kick-off for the Scotland versus Wales Six Nations game.

My Name’5 Doddie Foundation was set up by the late Doddie Weir and his trustees in 2017, following his diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease (MND).

Doddie Weir, a stalwart of rugby for many years, earned 61 caps for Scotland and represented the British and Irish Lions on their successful tour to South Africa in 1997.

He tragically passed away from MND last November.

Steve Morgan, a former rugby captain for North Wales, said: “Doddie was a true inspiration to many people, both on and off the pitch, and not just during his playing years.

"The way he faced his diagnosis head-on, without self-pity, was incredibly humbling to see.

"I’m sure many people took strength from his positive attitude and drive to raise funds for research which could, ultimately, make a big difference to those living with MND. “The Doddie Cup 555 is a brilliant event and this was the second year that I took part.

"It was great to set off from the iconic Wrexham FC football pitch early in the morning after the riders had refuelled and rested for breakfast.

"The response that we received along the way was momentous – thank you to everyone who supported and sponsored us.

“As a team, raising money for the My Name5 Doddie Foundation is hugely important, but, if we’ve also managed to help raise awareness of MND, then all the effort and training has been worthwhile!”

Accompanying Steve and Rob on the trip were Andrew Hamilton, Gwyndaf Jones, Matt Davies, Peter Harrison, Wyn Jones, John Vaughan, Neil Colquhoun, John Devereurx, Owain Tudur Jones and Tudur Owen.

The team cycled the 555 miles in a relay style in just two-and-a-half days.
