Event Details

500 Km | Four Days | Memories Made

Experience the life of a pro-rider in our unforgettable London to Paris cycling challenge.

For four days you’ll look and feel like a pro-rider. There’s no other event like it as you ride as part of a peloton with rolling road closures, technical and physio back up teams and a dramatic Arc de Triomphe finale.

From the rolling hills of Kent to the plains for Normandy; from the streets of London Town to the Champs-Élysées, this will be an unforgettable, life-changing experience. Riding with hundreds of fellow bike enthusiasts, you’ll be led by experienced ride captains for four days through beautiful countryside, cheered on by street-side supporters and flanked by motorcycle outriders. This is the ultimate cycling experience.

Bringing Paris to a standstill

The final leg of the epic journey sees traffic on the Champs-Élysées held back by motorcycle outriders as the Team Bloodwise peloton sprints towards the Arc de Triomphe. As you complete your epic journey, there will be laughter, hugs and tears - and plenty of champagne! You'll get the chance to relive all the thrills and spills at the extravagant post-race Gala dinner, held in 5-star accomodation, with celebrations continuing long into the night. This is an outstanding cycling challenge and don’t just take our word for it – 90% of our participants last year rated this event as excellent.​

Outstanding fundraising support

We pride ourselves on the fact that we've never had a rider fail to reach their fundraising target. We offer exceptional fundraising support, resources and materials to enable you to go above and beyond your target. We ask that all riders commit to raising at least £1,000 in sponsorship to help us fund vital research and support families affected by blood cancer.

Entering our 2018 event

There's still plenty of time to sign up to our 2017 ride, but if you'd prefer to enter our 2018 event (taking place between 13–16 September 2018) you can do so here from 1 June. You’ll be eligible for an earlybird discount, and we’re making a few key improvements for you to look forward to.

 

Why your help matters

  • Blood cancer is the third biggest cancer killer and it’s growing – it takes more lives every year than prostate or breast cancer
  • Blood cancer doesn’t discriminate – it can affect people of any age, gender or race, and it’s the most common cancer in children and young adults
  • Bloodwise has funded 4 out of 5 blood cancer researchers, and we’ve made great progress with many major cancer medicine advances coming first from blood cancer research. But there is much more for us to do – so join our team and help beat blood cancer.
