Mel Thompson and her London to Paris Cycle Ride!

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 primarily 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.

Mel takes on the Tour de France to raise funds for Bike 4 Cancer!

On the 24 July 2019 Mel will leave to take on the epic cycle challenge Tour de France in aid of Bike 4 Cancer.

Mel will be cycling from London to Paris and will also arrive in Paris in time to watch the arrival of the Tour de France on Sunday 28th July 2019!

Day 1 will see Mel cycle from London to Calais covering approximately 95 miles before catching the overnight ferry. On her second day Mel will cover approximately 75 miles cycling from Calais to Arras in Northern France and then will cycle a further 70 miles to get to Beauvais. The final push on day 4 will see Mel cycle a further 60 miles where she will finish her time in the saddle at the Eiffel Tower in Paris!
