Transporting all the riders’ luggage, spare parts and kit, not to mention the mountains of food and drink the riders consume over the course of five gruelling days in the saddle, is a massive logistical challenge.
Fortunately, help will be at hand in August thanks to the fantastic support of NL Van, Truck and Car Hire, who have once again stepped forward to be the logistics partner of the charity’s biggest fundraiser.

The UK Red Ride to Wembley is an off-road cycling challenge that will see 23 riders embark on a grueling 340-mile route from the George Hotel, Huddersfield, to the RL Challenge Cup final.
Over five days from Monday August 19, the rider will avoid tarmac wherever possible on a route that follows canal towpaths, forest trails, green lanes and bridleways across the Pennines and through Peak District, Cotswolds and Chiltern Hills.
The ride is sponsored by UK Red Security and Fire Systems, and Spec Ltd, and aims to raise £50,000 for Rugby League Cares.
