Join the team cycling capital to capital in this whirlwind cycle challenge and see part of the final stage of the Tour de France!

Your London to Paris cycling challenge will see you cycling 234 miles (377kms) over 3 days and through 2 countries.

Your challenge begins in the leafy suburbs of West London where you will meet the rest of your group and navigate your way out of Greater London through the English countryside to the South coast. You will head towards Hampton Court and then off on relatively traffic free, small country roads, negotiating the North and South Downs to Portsmouth. You then board an overnight ferry to Caen, snuggling into your berth for the night for a restful sleep following a long first day and a great cycling experience.

Your second day will see you continue your exciting journey past pretty French hamlets and through the beautiful French countryside until you reach the town of Evreux.

The penultimate day of your challenge pushes your stamina with 73miles (118kms) of cycling and over 1000m of ascent to Paris and to the famous Arc de Triomphe, end point of the Tour de France. It is here you can celebrate in style with a glass of champagne overlooking the Champs Elysees. You will then return home the following afternoon with some well earned comfort on the Eurostar.

There are two main payment options:

Minimum sponsorship option

You pay a non refundable registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship for WellChild. You will be asked to pay 80% of this sponsorship target at least 10 weeks before the challenge takes place in order for WellChild to pay your tour costs.

Self funded option

You pay the non refundable registration fee and 10 weeks before the challenge pay the tour costs. There is no minimum fundraising target but if you support WellChild you will receive lots of fundraising and training advice from our experienced team.

Tackle this popular challenge and celebrate your 234 mile victory under the Eiffel Tower with a glass of bubbly! Over three days you’ll make new friends and make a huge difference to sick children in the UK.

This challenge is taking place on a number of occasions throughout 2017. To check out other dates, visit here.
