Two Bath Rugby Foundation participants have joined the team at the charity’s annual continental cycling challenge.

The duo have been rewarded for their hard work over the past 12 months with invitations to take part in Ride Mallorca.

Liam Lintern (above, left) and Liam Davis (above, right) are both participants on the award-winning HITZ employability course.

They will be in Mallorca as part of the support crew over the three-day cycling challenge.

Bath Rugby Foundation holds a major cycling challenge every year. In the early years the fundraising challenge had been in the UK, before moving on to Ireland, France and Italy last year. This year the event has moved to the famed cycling routes of Mallorca, with more than 60 people signing up to take part.

In recent years Bath Rugby Foundation staff have taken the opportunity to give HITZ students the chance to gain work experience on the charity’s cycling events.

This year the two Liams will not only help the team’s support crew during the rides, but they will also speak to the assembled group about their experiences on the HITZ course.

Employability officer, Joe Aygul, said: “The HITZ programme is all about giving young people opportunities they have perhaps been denied in the past.

“Both of these young men have flourished since joining HITZ. It is a different way of learning, unlike school and this environment has allowed the Liams to push open doors they once believed were closed.”
