If cycling is your thing, then the London to Paris Cycle should be on your bucket list.

Cycling through beautiful English villages and into the stunning countryside of rural France you’ll pass historical landmarks and famous battlefields from World War I until you reach Paris, undoubtedly one of the most magical places on earth.

How fit do I need to be?

People from all walks of life will take part in this challenge and most people will be exactly like you. However it is vital that you train so that you get the most out of the cycle ride. We will send you a suggested training plan and will be on hand to help you with any training advice.

Will I be able to raise the sponsorship money?
