A cycling challenge can take you anywhere – London to Brighton, Lands End to John O’Groats, London to Paris or, more locally around Sussex and Surrey.  Whether you want to take part in an established event or create your own two-wheeled route, we are on hand to support you. We have highlighted some of the events below and you can also register your interest for 2019 events that will be coming soon.

You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 311 miles from capital to capital. The journey begins in London with the route taking you through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water, you start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right!  Cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.

A spectacular finish awaits as you reach the home stretch around the Arc de Triomphe and down the Champs Elysées, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line. The days in the saddle may be long but the sense of achievement you’ll feel crossing the finish line and the euphoric atmosphere as you celebrate your achievements in this magnificent capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!
