Cycle London to Paris

20 July 2016 (other dates also available in 2016) (London, International, Featured)

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

This 295 mile, four day bike ride will take you through the beautiful Kent countryside to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. You’ll cycle down quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling, green fields of Northern France. The pièce de résistance of this cycle challenge will be your final cycle up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, following in the tyre tracks of the cycling greats, before watching them cycle the same route the next day in the finale of the Tour de France! The challenge is tough with long days in the saddle but it’ll be a weekend you remember for years to come.
