London to Paris

What is the challenge?

We’ve teamed up with Global Adventure Challenges to offer our supporters the opportunity to take part in the London to Paris cycle ride — Tour de France edition! The 295 mile, four day bike ride takes you through the beautiful Kent countryside to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. The route takes you along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling, green fields of northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.

The pièce de résistance of this cycle challenge will be the final cycle up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, following in the tyre tracks of the cycling greats, before watching them cycle the same route the next day in the finale of the Tour de France!

How does the money you raise support us?

We are celebrating our 50th Anniversary in 2017 and all funds raised will be going towards our Sussex Giving for Sussex Children campaign, enabling us to continue to support children and their families across the county.

How do I get involved?
