London to Paris Cycle Challenge: Tour de France Special Edition

Tour de France - The Hibbs Lupus Trust

By registering for the July 2015 date, you will get the chance to ride the last few miles of the Tour de France route through Paris, then the following day get to see all the final stage action LIVE from the world famous Champs-Elysees.

Cycle for Lupus - The Hibbs Lupus Trust Starting in London, our 300 mile, 4 day route takes us through glorious English countryside, through the stunning South Downs in order for us to catch the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, we push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. Get ready for a fantastic charity bike ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport so don’t be surprised when the locals make way for you and cheer you on!

Whether you are a regular cyclist, or simply enjoy a Sunday afternoon meander, this charity cycle event is perfect for you. We cater for all levels of ability on this ride. The special cycling experience, combined with a fantastic support crew to look after you, means this charity challenge is no longer a dream but a reality. Don’t worry about your luggage, water or food – we take care of it all – leaving you to just cycle and focus on your goal of reaching Paris

Our route passes many war monuments and memorials, which always bring home a sobering thought of our existence. The pièce de résistance of this cycle for charity will be the spectacular view of the 324 metre Eiffel Tower, which marks our finish line. The days in the saddle are long, but upon reaching Paris and celebrating our achievements in this fabulous capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!

Join our London to Paris Bike Ride for a truly inspirational experience, and a great way to raise funds for The Hibbs Lupus Trust.
