Bike 4 Cancer - About Us

Set up by a team of cycling enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Bike 4 Cancer is a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. cycling) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

Cycle from London to Paris!

Cycling from London to Paris is one of Europe's greatest cycling challenges.

However, to cycle the distance (385 Km / 240 miles) in just 24 hours is a monumental challenge. This is not a challenge for the faint hearted!

With the finish line under the Eiffel Tower, you'll have some spare time to explore Paris before returning home.

Itinerary

Day 1-2: London to Paris (240 miles)
Leaving from London on a Friday you'll ride to Brighton. Over the downs and the famous beacon at Ditching with its breath-taking and then onwards from Brighton to Newhaven where you will catch the ferry over to Dieppe.

London to Paris 24 Hour Cycle Ride

The ferry gives us precious hours to rest before we arrive in France. Once on French soil on Saturday morning we will cycle the famous Avenue Verte cycle route which will provide traffic free cycling for the first 35 kms of the second leg of the route.

We should arrive at the outskirts of Paris after lunch. We follow the River Seine's southern esplanade as it turns towards the city before peeling off towards central Paris and the lofty Eiffel Tower, where our finish awaits.

Day 3: Paris to London (By train)
Spend the morning exploring Paris before catching the Eurostar back to London.
