Understanding our challenge types


Join our team and ride London to Paris for a truly inspirational experience; you'll make friends for life, push yourself beyond your limits but most of all make memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. You could even witness the finale of the world's greatest cycle race!

Our London to Paris Bike Ride is an awesome cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, attracting hundreds of riders each year and raising thousands for charities nationwide. 

We’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 311 miles from capital to capital. Our journey begins in London with the route taking us through glorious English countryside as we cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water, we start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right!  We cycle along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.

A spectacular finish awaits us as we reach the home stretch around the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs Elysées, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks our finish line. The days in the saddle may be long but the sense of achievement we’ll feel crossing the finish line and the euphoric atmosphere as we celebrate our achievements in this magnificent capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!

Why not add some Tour de France excitement into the mix and enjoy simply the best road cycling challenge we have to offer!

On our Tour de France finale challenge you'll arrive in Paris in time to witness the finale of the world's greatest cycle race. As we enter Paris in one large peloton, the crowds will be cheering thinking the Tour has reached the city one day early! The atmosphere is simply electric!
