What's it like?
The London to Paris charity cycle is a great experience and a fabulous
challenge. Cycling over 5 days you will cover nearly 500km. A challenge like
this is not just about distances covered and start and finishing points, the
bike ride is about group effort, friendship and more importantly spirit.
Charity treks and cycles bring together a vast array of people from many
different back grounds, each with their own reasons for taking up the challenge
and fundraising stories. Over the five days you'll meet like minded people,
swap stories and ideas and find new friends all while completing a truly
wonderful cycle ride.
The physical side of the trip is sometimes a worry for people who may not have
cycled much before signing up or who believe themselves to be out of shape.
Each ride is designed to ensure that everyone can take part and everyone
completes what they started. With some ground work covered at home before the
trip you will be more than capable of achieving the distances covered each day
and the group spirit will certainly keep you going if times get hard.
Out en route everyone is accompanied by our support vehicles and our London to
Paris reps so there is never any danger of being left behind and just to
reiterate this is certainly not a race. Plenty of water stops are provided to
ensure your good health along the route as we cycle during the summer months.
Each night the group will stay in hotels and eat together which provides some
rest and relaxation time and space to socialise with the people who you are
The route is planned to ensure that you see as much of the countryside as
possible, there are notable landmarks to look out for and youll see a side of
both rural England and France that you may not have experienced before. Small
country roads, World War battlefields, historic towns, gothic churches and
river side routes all make up part of this exciting trip so if youre looking
for a summer challenge or a fundraising event with a difference then the London
to Paris bike ride is for you!
