Be part of your own Tour de France as you cycle London to Paris in 5 days to raise money for The Big Issue Foundation! The route will take you from capital to capital through the scenic villages of southern England and into rural France, including famous battlefields and landmarks until you reach Paris on the 25th of July. The final day will be yours to soak up the culture and enjoy the Parisian way of life before returning via the Eurostar in the evening.
The challenge is designed so that you arrive in Paris for the final day of the tour de France, so if you wish you can join the crowds awaiting the competitors as they cycle through the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees!
This challenge is not for the faint hearted, but the accomplishment you will feel as you complete your adventure at the iconic Eiffel tower is unmatchable. The trip will be fully catered- so don’t worry about squashed sandwiches- a hearty breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided to fuel you through each day before you take rest in a range of 2-3* hotels along the way.
What is more, you won’t be alone in your challenge. As this event is hosted via Skyline, you will be cycling alongside many people supporting different charities. This challenge is a great way to meet new people, whether you are cycling solo or with friends- so what are you waiting for? Sign up now and get ready to make new friends as you undertake this once in a lifetime trip!
