Former Scotland and Lions rugby player Roger Baird is taking on a fundraising cycle this summer to raise money for the charity Walking with the Wounded.

The interesting part is that the cycle, called Ride with the Lions, is a mix of rugby and cycling. The riders, twelve of whom have been Lions players, will start out on 21 June 2014 at Twickenham and they will end up a week later arriving into Murrayfield Stadium. This is a 620 mile endurance cycle so it is no mean feat, even for someone who is as fit as Roger is.

The Edinburgh Reporter met him at Murrayfield where he was doing some training to find out about the ride and the charity. If you wish to support the former Scotland winger then please click here.
