If you have ever fancied riding from London to Paris on closed roads all the way to the Arc de Triomphe with full medical, mechanical and nutritional support over 4 days, then this may be for you. The ride is for The Royal British Legion, so sponsorship is required by yourself.
The cost includes kit, all transport, hotels, food, ride support with a final evening banquet on the Sunday in the Paris Hilton. Spending money will be required if visiting the bar! Ride speeds are in 3 groups: 12mph, 14mph & 18+mph, these are a guide only and you can swap from group to group throughout the ride.
If you require more information, then please message or e-mail me.
Sue and I are already signed up, so come and join us.
