    London | Paris: Be Unstoppable is a four day endurance ride, covering the varied landscapes of Kent and northern France.

    It's one of the only London to Paris rides to offer rolling road closures throughout France, full mechanical back up, sports physios and motorcycle outriders as part of the sign up price, and it's the only ride where all the money you raise goes directly towards improving the lives of blood cancer patients.

    During the ride you'll be supported by a dedicated crew including experienced ride captains, motorcycle outriders, mechanics, sports physios and support vehicles.

    With time trial and timed hill climb sections, you can test your ability and find out where you rank against the rest of the riders: it's the nearest thing to being in a professional road race.

    You'll ride as part of a peloton and experience the thrill of riding into Paris under closed road conditions with the support crew and locals cheering you on.

    London | Paris: Be Unstoppable: it's one of the most rewarding and challenging events around. Sign up now!


  • The adventure

    From London to Paris in four epic days


    Day One

    London to Calais

    17 September 2015: You'll gather in the iconic Greenwich Park to register, before setting off on the challenge of a lifetime. You'll have the chance to test your competitive spirit with a timed hill climb and time trial section. All riders will set off as one big peloton, as you begin this most epic of journeys ...

    “It's a great feeling as you move from the hustle and bustle of a busy city out into the Kent countryside!”
    Day Two

    Calais to Abbeville

    18 September 2015: After a hearty breakfast, it’s back in the saddle for the second day of the challenge. Heading through Pas de Calais and the Somme, you'll take on the rolling hills of Northern France with the expert help of our team of ride captains who'll offer advice and tips on how to improve your ride. You'll be supported throughout the day by our dedicated motorcycle outriders, who'll keep your ride smooth and free of traffic.

    “Northern France is surprisingly hilly but every cyclist likes a few challenges on any bike ride and riding these hills in such a large group makes the time fly by.”
    Day Three

    Abbeville to Beauvais

    19 September 2015: Half way through the challenge and one of the toughest days on the ride. You'll experience another timed hill climb and time trial section that will test both competitive natures and riding ability! The day will finish with a reception in Beauvais before bed reckons, ready for the big one.

    “Setting off on day three you really hit the French countryside, with rolling roads and green fields the order of the day.”
    Day Four

    Beauvais to Paris

    20 September 2015: The finish is in sight and the final day of the ride is set to be the most exciting. Riders set off in their groups, before joining together after lunch to form one huge peloton for the arrival into Paris. With full rolling road closures up to the Arc de Triomphe and then on to the Eiffel Tower, this is the bit where the tears start to flow and celebrations can begin.

    After a well-earned drink you'll return to your hotel. That evening, you’ll be treated to a champagne reception and a spectacular gala dinner where we'll relive your efforts over the last four days, toast the achievements, exaggerate the hills and promise to return with bells on in 2016.

    Celebrations typically go on well into the night so save some energy for this final hurrah with your new found friends!

    “On the approach to Paris the feeling of excitement within the cyclists is enough to increase your heart rate on it's own.”
    Day Five

    Paris to London

    21 September 2015: You'll return to London via Eurostar, probably a bit sore but triumphant, victorious and safe in the knowledge that you've not only completed an epic cycling challenge but that you did it to help the 38,000 people diagnosed with blood cancer each year, and made a difference to blood cancer patients throughout the UK. Your bike will be transported by road and will be ready for collection in London when you arrive.
