FORMER Scotland rugby captain Rob Wainwright and cyclist Mark Beaumont made a quick stop at Kendal Rugby club for a  hot breakfast this morning and a power nap before continuing on their 500-mile cycle challenge. 

The pair set off from Edinburgh yesterday and aim to cover 500 miles from Murrayfield to Twickenham in 48 hours ahead of the Calcutta Cup clash tomorrow.  

Carrying the match ball with them the team are doing the challenge to raise funds for Doddie Weir's motor neurone disease foundation. 

For every mile Wainwright and Beaumont, who holds the record for cycling around the world in less than 79 days, cycle they will donate £1 and they are asking all cyclists who are joining them to do the same. 

Money raised will go towards the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation for MND research. 

Arriving at the club in head to toe in tartan lycra the cyclists came off their bikes windswept and tired after having tackled the fells.
