Join the team for our 2014 London to Paris Charity Bike Ride, cycling 230 miles over three days finishing in Paris in time to see the Tour de France final.
Our professional cycling guides lead the way journeying down through the greenery of Surrey to Portsmouth, across the Channel to cycle through some of the most beautiful and quaint countryside villages before finishing in Paris. Sunday is yours to spend in Paris you can even see the final stage of the Tour de France!
There's no doubt that the London to Paris Bike Ride is a challenge as well as an amazing experience that benefits an inspirational and vital cause.
The ride is guided in groups and there is a group to suit everyone whether you’re a professional cyclist or new to cycling. We ask you aim to raise a minimum of £1,500 in sponsorship. This covers all your accommodation, meals and travel costs and provides vital funds which will go towards connecting Big Issue vendors with the essential support and solutions that enable them to rebuild their lives and journey away from homelessness.
"The Big Issue Cycle Ride certainly ranks as one of the best experiences I've ever had. The trip was fantastic fun and challenging, totally rewarding in terms of the financial support the trip generated for the phenomenal charity that is the Big Issue Foundation. Plus arriving in Paris in time to witness a British win of the Tour de France was an incredible bonus and totally awesome!!"
