Brake are looking for adventurous volunteers to cycle from London to Paris connecting two of the world’s most chic cities on one of the best cycling routes in Europe! Cycling through beautiful English villages and into the stunning countryside of rural France, you’ll pass historical landmarks and famous battlefields from World War 1 until you reach Paris, undoubtedly one of the most magical places on earth. The sense of achievement will be one you’ll cherish forever - an unforgettable experience. Sounds great doesn’t it? Why not GoogleEarth the route to really get a feel for it!

  • DAY 1: Cycle from London through Kent and North Downs to Dover; ferry to Calais
  • DAY 2: Quiet winding roads and beautiful old market towns to Abbeville
  • DAY 3: Follow River Somme and mainly flat tree-lined roads to Beauvais
  • DAY 4: Rural countryside and villages to outskirts of Paris; finish under Eiffel Tower
  • DAY 5: Free in Paris; return by Eurostar to London

All we ask is that you raise a minimum of £1,200 in sponsorship*. This includes a £600 donation to Brake and £600 to cover your costs, including travel by ferry to France and return travel to London on Eurostar, accommodation, all meals (excluding dinner on the ferry on day one and lunch and dinner on day 5), mechanics, guides and medical support.

Carole Hutchinson and Claire Harbridge cycled in memory of Claire's brother Stephen, killed on the roads. Claire says "We had an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone. I have raised over £2,200 for Brake."
