What is it?
Can you imagine cycling from London to Paris against a backdrop of some of the world’s most picturesque, historical and mesmerizing locations and landscapes, all whilst raising money for St Oswald’s? With this incredible event- you can! One of our most iconic and popular events is the London to Paris Bike Ride, and we are bringing it back this year by popular demand. So why not sign up and complete this fantastic challenge to help us raise much needed funds?
As one of our most popular Life List challenges, the cycle connects two of the world’s most stunning cities over a four day cycling event in which participants will embark on the challenge of a lifetime and cycle through a number of beautiful areas within the UK and France including rural areas, villages and countryside.
What is involved?
The bike ride will take place between 16th - 20th May 2018 and will provide an ideal opportunity to get fit, make friends, complete a Life List challenge and visit some stunning locations, which you previously may not have had the chance to visit.
2-3* accommodation, all overland transport (ferry and Eurostar), all food (except 2 meals), water and refreshments, support crew and mechanical support.
In order to secure your place on the challenge, we require a £99 deposit and we ask that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £1600 which goes towards our work with North East families. If you haven’t done anything like this before or have concerns about planning for it – don’t worry. We can help you on every step of the way with a training schedule to get you fit enough before the challenge, to some fantastic fundraising ideas to ensure you raise as much as possible before embarking on the challenge.
By signing up to London to Paris, you'll be raising vital funds for a hospice that supports local children and adults with life-limiting conditions
Words cannot express how important a role you all play in families lives when they need you the most. You are a tremendous support and we have been privileged to experience your unique skills when we needed them. Keep up the good work.
So whether you prefer to be home or away, on the ground or up in the air, or to ride your bike or go for a hike - we have a challenge for you.
