London to Paris - 19th/23rd July 2017 + many more dates!
 
Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe. Join this Bike Ride for a truly inspirational experience, and a great way to raise funds for the Dystonia Society.

Starting in London, the 299 mile, 4 day route takes you through the glorious English countryside, to the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, you push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. Get ready for a fantastic charity bike ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport so don’t be surprised when the locals make way for you and cheer you on!

Whether you are a regular cyclist or simply enjoy a Sunday afternoon meander, as long as you are willing to train, then this charity cycle event is perfect for you. All levels of ability are catered for on this ride. The special cycling experience, combined with a fantastic support crew to look after you, means this charity challenge is no longer a dream but a reality. There’s no need to worry about your luggage, water or food – they take care of it all – leaving you to just cycle and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.

The pièce de résistance of this cycle for charity will be the spectacular view of the 324 metre Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line. The days in the saddle are long, but upon reaching Paris and celebrating our achievements in this fabulous capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!

Cycle Vietnam to Cambodia - November 2017

 VietnamCambodiaCycle
 

This breath-taking charity bike ride is an established favourite and will take you from Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Upon arrival, you’ll have time to explore the fascinating city of Saigon – the heart of Vietnam – before commencing with the charity challenge.

The 400km route will goes through many traditional Vietnamese villages, follows gorgeous streams and rivers, passing paddy fields adjacent to stunning mountains. Few locals will have seen foreigners cycling past, and their interest and hospitality will spur on even the most tired cyclist.

We then cross the border into Cambodia and push on to the world famous temple site of Angkor Wat – arguably one of most fascinating wonders of the world! Built from 879 – 1191AD by the Khmer civilisation, Ankgor Wat represents one of mankind’s most astonishing architectural achievements and is certainly the jewel in Cambodia’s crown.

Two fascinating countries – one awesome charity challenge. Join this magical cycle today and experience South East Asia at its best!

Mayan Bike Adventure - 18th Feb, 25th November 2017 
MayanBikeAdventure

This incredible ride crosses the famed Yucatan peninsula from the Gulf of Mexico via the renowned pyramid of Chichen Itza to finish by the Caribbean at the magestic Mayan ruins of Tulum.

Not only is it a route packed with unmissable cultural highlights, it’s also a beautiful ride as you pass tropical plantations, cattle ranches, colonial towns, and colourful villages - capped off wonderfully by picture-perfect white-sand beaches awaiting your arrival at the finish line.

The route is generally flat making this a perfect first cycle challenge, but the long hot days in the saddle make the terrain feel much harder, so you will be glad to reach the warm blue waters of the Caribbean once you've completed your challenge!
