London to Paris in 24 Hours Cycle Challenge

Greenwich, London

Organiser's Description

--- This event has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns regarding Coronavirus. The race organiser will be in touch with you in due course if you have made a booking for this event. ---

Want a challenge that will test your metal. Well how about this behemoth challenge. This 24 hour, 180 mile challenge will test even the most hardened of cyclists. Completing this challenge will make 2020a year that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.

We leave London at 4:00pm and cycle around 60 miles through the countryside to Newhaven. We catch the overnight ferry to Dieppe and have a few hours rest before disembarking around 5.00am local time. After getting off the ferry we cycle the remaining 120 miles before arriving in the great capital city of Paris by 5.00pm local time. After photos and celebrations at the Eiffel Tower we book into our three star hotel before enjoying an evening meal and getting some well-earned rest.

After a good night’s sleep and a great breakfast it’s time to take the Eurostar back to London with memories never to be forgotten.

A non refunable deposit of £100 is required at the time of booking and full payment is due eight weeks before the event. The price of the challenge is based of two people sharing a room, a single room supplement for those that want a private room is £60 per person, a space in a shared cabin on the ferry is £35 per person. These can be added when booking.

Everyone is free to ride at their own pace but we re-group at the food stops, this allows us to provide the best support for the whole group. All riders must reach the ferry & food stops by a certain times, if for one reason or another riders are not able to reach theses points in time then they will be required to catch a lift in one of our support vehicle and dropped off further along the route.

To complete this challenge you will need to be riding at an average pace of 14mph or faster.
