Charity Chases Triple Century from London to Paris

2 April 2003

Leading medical charity, Action Research is aiming to score a triple century in its sponsored cycle ride from London to Paris in July.

The Charity is urging cyclists to sign up for the ride which arrives in Paris to witness the final stage of the 100th anniversary Tour as it sprints towards the finish at The Arc De Triomphe.

To match this centenary, Action Research is aiming to sign up 100 participants prepared to test their stamina and help raise £100,000 thus completing the triple century.

Anthony North, Head of Events at Action Research says, “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see The Tour in its Centenary year. There are just a few places left which, once filled, will ensure we raise a tremendous £100,000 for vital research and help save lives.”

Cyclists will notch up almost 300 miles in the 4-day ride from 23rd-27th July. Participants can register for only £99 by calling the events hotline on (01732) 744031, or by email at events@action.org.uk, or at www.action.org.uk/events. Participants must commit to raise a minimum amount in sponsorship.
