The challenge

  • Cycle 270 miles over one long weekend
  • Depart from England's bustling capital, London
  • Ride through beautiful French countryside
  • Celebrate the completion of your challenge at the Eiffel Tower
  • Return in comfort on the Eurostar from Paris

Travel from one great European city to another, powered by your own cycling steam. Over the course of four days, cyclists will cover an impressive 270 miles/435 kms across England and France. Setting off from London, the group will head quickly into the Kent countryside, and venture out over the North Downs towards Canterbury at the end of day one. 

On day two we make the relatively short trip to Dover where we cross into France before an afternoon ride to Montreuil sur Mere, the setting for the musical Les Miserables. From here the French leg of the journey continues through the beautiful French countryside towards our second overnight stop in Beauvais. On day four we have the final push into Paris where the Eiffel Tower creeps up on you for a spectacular finish after our quiet route in.

Brilliant! A well supported challenge, some long climbs and the beautiful French countryside. As for cycling down the Champs Elysees towards the Eifell Tower it was something else. Mission accomplished with knobs on!

It's the best cycle challenge I've ever done. Great roads, great camaraderie, a great experience!

I had the best time on my London to Paris bike ride! I went by myself and was really grateful to have such a fun group of participants and leaders. If you're looking for a well organised adventure, I would definitely recommend Charity Challenge!
