CYCLIST INFORMATION

London to Paris 2019

23rd to 25th August

Fundraising

This year’s London to Paris charity cycle ride will help raise £150,000 to cover the costs to run a mobile health clinic in the West Bank in Palestine for one year.  A mobile health clinic is vital to the lives of thousands of people who do not have access to water, electricity and health care.  The people in the West Bank are prevented from building any buildings, have restricted movement and this makes the mobile health clinic the only contact they have with doctors and health care workers.

Training

Cycling from London to Paris is an epic challenge which is very achievable with some structured training. In general, we recommend a minimum of 10-12 weeks training. Naturally, the more you train, the fitter you will be and the more you will enjoy the ride.

We have put together a 10 week training plan based on training plans by British Cycling. The training plans have been followed by cyclists in previous years and have proven to be very effective in getting ready for the ride.

The basic training plan provides high level milestones for each week and the detailed training plan sets daily milestones for each week.

The Route

We will be cycling on some of the most beautiful and scenic roads in England and France. Below are the routes for each day:
