Cycle 315 miles from capital to capital


group of cycling men

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

4 days in the saddle, cycling from capital to capital. You will begin in London, with the route winding through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel and continuing through the rolling green fields of Northern France, where you will pass the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme. A spectacular finish awaits you as you reach the pièce de résistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line.
