London to Paris Cycle Challenge – Tour de France special
Thursday 26 Jul 18 - Sunday 29 Jul 18 Registration fee £175. Minimum sponsorship target £1,750. Self funded £858.
Join the team cycling capital to capital in this whirlwind cycle challenge and see part of the final stage of the Tour de France!
Travel from one great European city to another, powered by your own cycling steam. Over the course of three days, cyclists will cover an impressive 283 miles/460 kms across England and France. Setting off from South London, the group will head towards Kent – ‘The Garden of England’ – then venture out to the countryside on relatively quiet roads towards the White Cliffs of Dover.
A ferry transports the riders to Calais, where you will cycle to your hotel for the night.
The French leg of the journey commences the next day where you will cycle through beautiful French countryside and pretty hamlets roll by as we head for the town of Amiens, where we spend the night. And then for the final push as we head towards Paris and ultimately the Eiffel Tower.
After a morning to rest your sore heads from the celebration dinner, you have the opportunity to watch the last stage of the Tour de France before your evening Eurostar back to London.
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 283 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 seriously ill children in the UK.
