IPA UK: Charity Cycle Ride - London to Paris

07.06.2023 - 11.06.2023


Come and Join Pheonix Peloton for our yearly charity cycle ride. We are cycling from London to Paris in 2023. The Chosen charity will be Roadpeace. 

This is open to all including family and friends. You don't have to be an elite cyclist and is open to all abilities.

We will be riding through Cassel, which was very important in the defence of Dunkirk in 1940 and was used in stage 4 of the Tour de France and every year it is the 4 days of Dunkirk pro race.

We also go along Vimy ridge just outside Lens, we cross the somme river and across much of the front line from 1916. We cycle through Compiegne Forest which is very famous as it is where the Germans conceded WW1 and then France conceded to the Germans in 1940

Travel : 7th June 2023: Dover to Calais via a ferry crossing ( taking bicycles with you), 11th June 2023: Paris Gare du Nord to Kings Cross St Pancras via Eurostar ( no bicycles allowed on Eurostar) Sporta Bike+ will return your bicycle to Kings Cross St Pancras for collection
