Below are just some of the events we are covering this year,
Bloodwise London to Paris September 14 - 17
Experience the life of a pro-rider in our unforgettable London to Paris cycling challenge, 500kms in four days.
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.
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.
Royal British Legion Pedal to Paris Aug 31 - Sept 4
Setting off from London, the four-day event will take you through beautiful English and French countryside covering a total of 460km/284miles. Once in France, we coordinate rolling road closures so you can cycle from Calais to the very heart of Paris without having to think about traffic, junctions or red lights. This is the only cycling event apart from the Tour de France that the Arc de Triomphe closes for.
You’ll receive a warm welcome as we pass through France - many locals come out to cheer you along! You’ll pass the distinctive landmarks of Paris before the final leg - cycling towards the Arc de Triomphe in a peloton of 300 cyclists is an experience you’ll never forget! The ride culminates with a moving ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe followed by a celebration dinner at the hotel in Paris.
It’s a challenging ride and we recommend training to make the most of the experience, but the Legion's specialist support team and riders will be with you every step of the way. Riders can also choose from three different speed groups (fast, intermediate and social) so whether you’re social cyclist or a bit of a pro, there’s a group to match your pace.
