Why choose London to Paris?
Don’t just take our word for it, read what Charlotte had to say:
“If you’re looking for a fun and challenging experience to participate in to raise funds for the Trust then I can highly recommend signing up for the London to Paris cycling challenge! The 300 mile bike ride takes place over four days and departs from Crystal Palace, London finishing at the Eiffel Tower, Paris. I really enjoyed the whole experience; this challenge is by no means an easy one but everyone bands together for support and with some basic training is achievable for all taking part. It was a privilege to undertake this trip on behalf of people who can no longer manage activities such as this one in the hope that the money raised will go towards vital research and support for these people affected. If you are in any doubt about doing a challenge, my advice is just do it! You will not regret this experience of a lifetime!”
Event: London to Brighton Cycle Ride
Date: Sunday, 15th September, 2019
Location: London to Brighton
Sponsorship: £150 Sign up externally Sign up here.
Why choose London to Brighton?
This mass-participation one day cycle ride takes a route from Clapham Common in London
to Madeira Drive on the Brighton sea front. So not only a ride with some stunning views but great for riders of all abilities in an informal setting.
Don’t just take our word for it – this is what Jeremy who did the ride in 2017 had to say –
“My mother was the one who put my name down for
the event and never having done anything like it I
was unsure whether I would actually go through with
it. However, I am extremely glad that I completed it
as firstly, my target was greatly surpassed by the
fantastic support of my friends and family, raising
money for a great cause gave me a real sense of
achievement and pride. On the day of the cycle, to
my surprise I really enjoyed it, the atmosphere, the
views and the feeling of accomplishment as you
cycled through the cheering crowds along Brighton
