Support Us : London to Paris

Team 21 at the Eiffel Tower after completing the London to Paris Bike Ride.

Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, and the best of bike rides for charity to hit the sector! Join our London to Paris Bike Ride for a truly inspirational experience, and a great way to raise funds for the DSA.

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 the July ride for your chance to watch the finale of the Tour de France!
