London to Paris

3 days – 3 stages – 600km

Cyclists at any level have wondered how hard it must be to ride the Tour de France. Twenty One days of relentless miles, attacks, mountain passes, heat and even snow. The passion, pain, endurance and strength leaves us breathless and in awe.

London to Paris is an opportunity to test you over a three day ‘Tour de France’ Charity Cycle Ride from the English capital to the French. Ride as if you are in the Tour with support vehicles and mechanics over 3 gruelling days and more than 600 km’s of tarmac.

You will ride in graded groups, allowing the faster hare’s to hammer it and the tortoises to conserve energy. Support vehicles will never be far away and will be able to sweep up the riders who need a well earned break. On the inaugural ride in 2004 there were riders who surprised themselves with their own ability to battle it out in the saddle. The camaraderie resulted in everyone in the entire ‘peloton’ reaching the finish in Paris and making cycling friends for life. It certainly sounds like a challenge.

As you complete your challenge, you will also be helping support the London-Paris chosen charity Schools for Children of Cambodia in their endeavours to provide Cambodia’s children with an education. In the UK we take education for granted. In Cambodia it is very different. In a country still suffering the legacy of a decade of war and genocide most families are to poor too afford even the most elementary education for their children. Schools for Children of Cambodia aim to give these children the opportunities that they deserve.
