Acorns London to Paris Cycle Challenge
July 10, 2013 (All day)
Known as one of Europe’s best long distance cycling routes, this 300 mile, 4 day challenging trip will take cyclists from London through the stunning South Downs and on to Dover to catch the ferry to Calais. The French part of the route follows country lanes passing market towns and battle fields with views of the rolling hills of Northern France.
A tough and hilly route, the group will need to dig deep and support each other to reach the finish line at the Eiffel Tower in Paris. After an evening of celebration there will be a free morning to enjoy Paris before taking the Eurostar back to London.
Whether you are a regular cyclist, or simply enjoy a Sunday afternoon meander, this is a fantastic opportunity to take on a challenge, get fit and meet other like-minded people to raise vital funds for Acorns! All levels of ability are catered for on this ride; you don’t need to worry about accommodation, luggage, water or food, leaving you to just cycle and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.
