Join us on the inaugural Cycle to Paris Arbitration Week (PAW) and help us transform young lives. The ride is open ride to all levels of rider and will provide some of the best networking both on and off the bike. Whether you own a road bike or are yet to buy one, we'll help and support you every step of the way. In the leadup to the ride, a number of training rides and social events will help you prepare for the challenge ahead. It will be a unique team effort that forms memories and friendships for life - and most importantly raises money for Club Peloton and our supported projects.
The ride is fully supported with mechanics, paramedic and the Club Peloton crew. You'll ride as one peloton at an average speed of around 25kph, supporting each other and building a phenomenal team spirit over three days. While the pace is set by the slowest rider, it should be stressed pre-event training is essential. Riding in a group saves energy and you'll go faster than when riding by yourself. It sounds daunting, but everyone who tries it from novices to seasoned riders love the experience.
Our journey from the heart of London to Paris promises to be stunning. Leaving on Friday 15th March, we will escape the confines of London and head through the North Downs and picturesque villages of Surrey and Hampshire to reach the naval city of Portsmouth. An overnight ferry takes us to Caen and the start of our journey from the coast, heading east through Normandy towards our overnight stop in Évreux.
