How fit do I need to be?

You don't need to be a fitness fanatic to do this challenge. The majority of people on the trip will be just like you and will not necessarily have done anything like this before. However to get maximum enjoyment from the challenge training is vital and we will provide you with a detailed training plan which we strongly recommend you stick to. We will also be on hand every step of the way to provide training advice.

How much do I have to raise?

£1,400

What deposit do I have to pay?

£99

What will the accomodation be like?

We will be staying in minimum three star hotels throughout the trip.

What do I need to bring?

No specialist kit is required although we strongly recommend that you use your own bike for both your training and the event itself. You will also need to bring your own cycle helmet. We will send you a full packing list for the trip you are going on once you have registered.

What is the food like?

Lots of familiar European dishes will be on the menu! Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided throughout the trip except for 3 meals (dinner on the ferry on the way out to France and lunch and dinner in Paris on our last night). We can of course cater for vegetarians and other dietary requirements - as long as you let us know in advance!

What will happen to my luggage during cycling days?

There will be support vehicles with the group at all times which means your luggage will be transported in one of these vehicles for you. You will just need to carry a bum bag for any essentials like a camera.

Is there an age restriction?

You will need to be over 18 but there is no upper age limit. If you are over 65 you will just need to get a medical form signed by your doctor.

What about insurance?

You must have travel insurance cover in order to participate in this challenge. You can either arrange this yourself (as long as your insurance company is aware of the nature of what you are doing and that it is a charity event) or we can help you arrange this.

Can I stay on in Paris?

No. Unfortunately due to Eurostar restrictions we are unable to change any tickets.
