Cycle London to Paris

Various dates throughout 2014/15 (Featured)

Experience the world on two wheels while raising vital funds for type 1 diabetes research.

The London to Paris cycle is one the most popular and well known cycle challenges on offer in the UK. This unique cycle will see you cycling through two great European cities in just three days and covering an impressive 228 miles. 

Your cycle begins a Twickenham Stadium where you will meet the rest of your group and head through rural Surrey on small country roads, finishing the day at Portsmouth for your overnight ferry to Caen. Your second day is slightly longer but on beautiful country roads through the enchanting French countryside. The final day pushes your stamina, finishing at the Trocadéro Gardens, opposite the Eiffel Tower, celebrating in style with a glass of bubbly. You will then return home the following afternoon with some well-earned comfort on the Eurostar.

‘It is great for team building and people coming together to challenge themselves to raise funds for JDRF.’
Tony Reeves, JDRF Board Director
'The experience of cycling in our JDRF shirts to the Eiffel Tower to be greeted by tears, champagne, yells and the tinkling of over 100 bicycle bells was fantastic!’ 
Ian and Beth Whitworth
