Understanding our challenge types


Join Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity 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.

Cycling London to Paris 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 3 days in the saddle, cycling 237 miles from capital to capital. Our journey begins in London with the route taking us through glorious English countryside as we cycle from Croydon to Portsmouth, before crossing the Channel to Caen. 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.

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!

I recently took part in the London to Paris bike ride in September.. I had a brilliant time, it exceeded my expectations. The hotels and meals were excellent. The route was well marked out and well planned, with water stops every 20 or so miles. It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend using this company to take part in this challenge.
