The London to Paris Bike Cycle is legendary, and by far one of the most inspirational fundraising events of the year. Your eyes will be set upon glorious countryside alongside new friends you’ll make, with the power to raise both awareness and funds for people affected by ataxia.

The challenge is 311 miles in total, stretched over four days – think of the amount of people you can tell about your challenge, whilst wearing your Ataxia UK jerseys!

The journey begins in London, cycling from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Then, through French country lanes and traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. A spectacular finish awaits you as you reach the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysées, before the incredible finish line of the Eiffel Tower!

If you’d like Ataxia UK to pay for your place, we ask for a minimum sponsorship of £1,600 plus a registration fee of £125. However, if you’d prefer to self-fund, it is £800 plus registration fee of £125 and no minimum sponsorship.
