Cycle London To Paris

Wednesday 6th June 2018

 

4 days cycling, 300 miles, 2 cities, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help stop bowel cancer. Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer is the charity partner for this iconic London to Paris ride – join our team today!

The London to Paris Cycling Challenge isn’t just one of Europe’s most iconic bike rides, it’s a once in a lifetime experience.

 

You’ll cover approximately 300 miles in just four days, taking on strenuous hill-climbs as well as some serious hours in the saddle, before reaching our Eiffel Tower finishing point where you can celebrate your achievement in style.

 

Our team will be there for you every step of the way, providing you with advice on both fundraising and training.

 

Along the way you’ll be pushed to the limit, make new friends and take in some stunning scenery, safe in the knowledge that your challenge will help stop bowel cancer.
