London to Paris Cycle Challenge

Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best bike rides in Europe, so why not cycle for charity and join Team Prevent Breast Cancer for a truly inspirational experience.


Starting in London, this 4 day route takes us through some glorious undulating countryside on route to the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, we cycle along quiet country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France. Get ready for a fantastic ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport, so don’t be surprised if the locals cheer you on!


Date: 20th – 24th August 2019

Cost: £100 non-refundable registration fee / Minimum sponsorship of £1,500 (£750 of which must be raised no later than 8 weeks before the event start date)


Sign up and you’ll receive:

  • A Prevent Breast Cancer cycling jersey
  • A fundraising pack; which includes our handy fundraising guide, sponsor forms and other tools to help you with your fundraising
  • Support from a dedicated member of our fundraising team
  • The option to join a Whatsapp group exclusively for Team Prevent Breast Cancer cyclists – this is a great way to meet your fellow cyclists and share training tips
