Our exciting cycle challenge takes us from London to Compiègne, synonymous with the signing of the Armistice at the end of the First World War.
We ride through the leafy lanes of southeast England before crossing the Channel and riding through northern France, tracing some of the region’s most significant World War One & World War Two battle sites touring the national Allied memorials to the French, Canadian, Australian, Indian and British fallen. The towns of Arras and Saint Quinten also featured heavily during this period but now provide us with beautiful town squares to spend the evening. Our route finishes in the Glade of the Armistice, a fitting ending to a poignant tour.
Please see our detailed route descriptions for further information.
Join our fight for little lives
There are hundreds of thousands of children in the UK whose lives are devastated by disease and disability. It’s too many. Far too many. Research can put a stop to this.
For more than 60 years Action Medical Research has helped pioneer treatments and ways to prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and across the world. Our research has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop ultrasound in pregnancy, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirths.
But we urgently need to develop more new treatments and cures for sick babies and children and we can’t do it without you.
Glider Technology is the developer of GliderBIM, the easiest way to manage asset information through design, construction, and operation.
