About the 2013 event...

On the 17th July 2013, 25 cyclists set out on an epic ride to raise funds for EACH.The team en-route

Starting in London, the 300 mile, four day route saw the cyclists riding through the stunning English and French countryside. The challenge ended in Paris riding up the majestic Champs Elysees and around the Arc de Triumph to the finish line at the Eiffel Tower.

The fifth day was spent watching the Tour De France riders follow suit on the 100th anniversary of the race. Cyclists saw riders of the calibre of Chris Frome and Mark Cavendish cross the finish line – a day to remember!

The team set themselves the target of £40,000.

We're delighted to announce that they have smashed this and raised a tremendous £51,500!
