London to Paris cycle ride

31 August – 4 September

Cycling from London to Paris is one of the great cycle experiences in Europe. Passing through picturesque Kent countryside, we cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower, your finishing point, will evoke a real sense of achievement. Your last day in Paris allows you to explore the sights and soak up the romantic atmosphere of this majestic city!

Cycle for The Royal Marines Charity and you pay a £149 registration fee and have a £1450 sponsorship target. We’ll be there every step of the way and will be able to support you with fundraising and training tips, materials and any queries you may have about the event or your fundraising.

What’s included?

All accommodation is included in 2-3* hotels on a twin-share basis, as well as transport (by ferry and Eurostar) and all meals except three as specified. It also includes full trip support of experienced Discover Adventure leaders, drivers and mechanics. Lunches are generous buffet-style, while dinners are generally eaten in the hotels. The tour cost does not include personal travel insurance, meals as specified (allow £30- 50), a bicycle, drinks, extra food, personal items or any optional tourist activities.

The event was set up by Surgeon Commander Anthony Lambert OBE in 2009 and has been played ever since on the Tuesday before remembrance Sunday to raise funds for The Royal Marines Charity.  This year tickets cost £5 and are available online or at the gate on the night.

There are also corporate entertainment opportunities available from just £20 per head to include a welcome drink, food choice, match ticket and souvenir programme. Please email Anthony Lambert for more details.

The Medics Rugby is a spectacular event, which year on year has risen over £20,000 on the night to support injured Royal Marines in need; we do hope you’ll join us.
