Some of us didn't own a bike before we started training for this trip.

Event details

London to Paris cycle

UPDATE : we did it! It was tough and some of those hills really hurt but we're delighted we made it. Thanks for the support! 
In September we'll be cycling from London to Paris. That's 340km...or approximately 335km longer than some of us have ever cycled. Gulp.

We're doing it in aid of the incredible charity Calais Kitchens, an entirely volunteer run organisation feeding the 9,000 people in the refugee camp at Calais.

The situation at the camp is dire; there's no government or large charity assistance to help the people there. Numbers in the camp have doubled over this year, but news coverage has dropped off so donations are down. They're struggling to provide even one meal a day for the people in the camp. Your donation will literally be feeding someone their only hot meal of the day. 

We've done months of training and will be the ones sitting on those bikes for 8 hours a day, and a few quid from you to this excellent cause will make it a little more bearable.
