Lewis is leading the WRU's continual efforts to raise money for the WRCT, which works tirelessly to support players and their families who have been severely injured whilst playing rugby in Wales.
Set up in 1972, the trust is managed by ten trustees and is supported by the WRU in its fundraising activities and by an annual donation. There are currently 20 players in Wales who have suffered serious spinal injuries and are now confined to wheelchairs. The Trust works with all of the injured players to help improve their quality of lives and relies on public donations.
For the challenge Lewis will be joining Nottingham University's Life Cycle 3 ride for the Welsh leg of their epic 1,100 mile event. The Life Cycle 3 ride is raising money for Stroke Rehabilitation and visiting every capital city in the U.K and Lewis will make a personal donation to the charity for the privilege of joining them in Wales.
On Sunday, Lewis will team up with the other cyclists in Holyhead and will begin the challenge with a 28 mile journey to Bangor.
There will be no rest on Bank Holiday Monday as the miles begin to clock up with a demanding 82 mile leg from Bangor to Aberystwyth lying ahead of the team.
On Tuesday the route will take the cyclists through Llanybydder as they ride the 73 miles down to Swansea.
Wednesday will see a 52-mile stretch completed between Swansea and Cardiff and the team will be welcomed into the capital at the Millennium Stadium.
Day five and the final leg for Lewis will a 32 mile ride to the Severn Bridge and his finish line.
Since it was formed the WRCT has distributed more than £2 million to the care of injured players every penny raised by Lewis will go directly to assisting players and their families.
