The London to Paris Cycle is one of Europe's most scenic cycling experiences, taking you through towns, cities, the countryside and even across the Channel - but luckily that bit's a on a ferry!
This ride features some pretty steep hills and will see you spend some long days on your bike, but completing this four-day trek, which finishes up below the Eiffel Tower, gives you a real sense of achievement - and a bonus day in Paris at the end of it so you can rest after your 500km cycle!
Entry deposits are £99, along with a minimum sponsorship total of £1,450. That covers your ferry ride out to France and your Eurostar back, as well as all of your accommodation for four nights, most of your meals, and mechanical and medical support.
