Overview

Cycle from London to Paris in just 24 hours whilst raising vital donations to help Duchenne UK find effective treatments for DMD.

Your journey will start at the Herne Hill Velodrome, South East London, working your way down the country to Newhaven and boarding the overnight ferry to Dieppe. You'll get the chance to rest before getting straight back on the saddle, taking in the stunning views of the French countryside and towns on your way to the French capital. You will arrive at the triumphant finish line under the Eiffel Tower.

We will celebrate with a dinner and overnight stay right by the Eiffel Tower. You will make friends and memories that will last a life-time, whilst also bringing hope to thousands of families across the UK.

This is a truly VIP cycling experience, your bags, crossings, accommodation, meals and snacks will all be taken care of for you. All you need to do is keep peddling and raising vital funds to support Duchenne UK’s life changing work.
