300 miles, 4 days, 2 capital cities; one amazing challenge!
This cycling challenge has increased in popularity in recent years and usually sells out fast; 2019 is not going to be an exception! Following our start in the rolling Kent countryside we will travel along quiet French country lanes with stunning views of Northern France as we head to the capital city.
The pièce de résistance of this challenge is that we will finish in Paris the day before the winner of the 2018 Tour de France sprints down the Champs Elysees so you will be able to watch the final stage.
There will be a support team with you every pedal of the way to take care of your luggage, water and food, leaving you to focus on the cycling. So there really is no reason not to take part!
When is it happening? The London to Paris cycling challenge will take place between 24th – 28th July 2019.
Why should I do it? This challenge is a unique way to see the sights of Paris and take in the atmosphere of this incredible sporting event which will be completely unforgettable. However there’s another important motivation for taking part. Sadly, cancer will touch almost everyone at some point in their lives. We believe that everyone affected by cancer should have access to our support and we need your help to make this happen.
By getting on a bike, not only will you be taking on a huge personal challenge that many people only dream of achieving, but you will be helping us support more people with cancer.

“London-Paris was the most incredible experience and I’m so, so glad I took the plunge and signed up! I met some fantastic people and saw the most amazing scenery but most of all it was wonderful knowing that I was making a difference for more people with cancer like my sister.”
