Briggsy Cycle

On March 31st 2013, Gordi Reid, Owen McInroy and Ally Peterson are setting off on an extremely challenging and ambitious cycle to raise funds for the Craig Hodgkinson trust. The 3 GHK Rugby club players have been set the following challenge – to cycle around Scotland visiting the country’s top 40 rugby clubs leaving from Aberdeen on Sunday 31st March in the morning and arriving back at Old Anniesland in Glasgow, home of GHK, the following Saturday afternoon. This involves approximately 650 miles of cycling over 6 and a half days, including between 8 and 12 hours of cycling per day.

Our chosen charity is one very close to our and the club’s hearts as Craig Hodgkinson was an ex Glasgow High School, GHK and Glasgow Hawks player and team-mate who tragically died whilst playing our beloved game from an unknown cardiac defect. Other young professional sportsmen who have fallen victim to cardiac arrest include Scotland’s own Phil O’Donnell as well as the more recent miracle of Fabrice Muamba.

The Craig Hodgkinson Trust was set up by his parents, Diane and John, who is currently a member of the coaching staff at GHK. The trust exists to provide defibrillator equipment to sports team, clubs and communities. They wish to distribute defibrillator machines to sports’ clubs and communities throughout the country to ensure that potential life-saving equipment is on hand. Our aim is to raise as much money as possible to help allow the trust to achieve this.

We would all be very grateful if you could support us for this highly demanding challenge by donating to this extremely important charity. You can follow our progress on our facebook page ( and twitter (which will be up and running soon).

Please help us raise as much as possible!!! All of the money donated here will go towards the Trust and into purchasing defibrillators!
