Pedal to Paris

In 2014, the Legion's flagship cycling event took place from 4-8 September. The four-day 460 kilometre adventure from London to Paris, travelled through some of the best cycling landscape of England and northern France. Watch the 2014 Pedal to Paris film on YouTubeDHP 5174 3524852209 O

In 2015 we will be celebrating 20 years of Pedal to Paris, and the ride continues to be one of the best-loved charity rides around, with cyclists coming back year after year. 

Every aspect of the ride is planned with precision  - from accommodation and transport to the all-important mechanics, outriders and sports physios. We plan so you can ride hassle-free. Just one of the reasons so many cyclists come back to us again and again.

Tour description

Cyclists looking for a long distance ride, where they are afforded the same support and back up as the Tour de France, need look no further.

Participants ride through some of the finest cycling terrain in England and France - from sweeping wooded countryside and quaint hamlets to quiet rural lanes and city streets closed just for the event. It is challenging, but the Legion's specialist team of mechanics, sports physios and motorcycle outriders are there to support riders throughout the journey.

Cyclists can bask in star treatment as they ride through the streets of Paris closed especially for the event - one of a select few bike rides other than the Tour de France offered this special privilege. Yes, riders need to put in the training to make the most of this amazing event, but the Legion helps them every step of the way - from the day they sign up to the end of their exciting adventure.
