Pedal to Paris

Group Chairman and CEO Paul Flatt will be competing in a four-day cycle challenge from London to Paris on the 1st September 2016 (over 460km) in support of the Royal British Legion.

Along with a team of colleagues, Paul will be cycling over 460 kilometers through the English and French countryside stopping in Calais, Abbeville and Beauvais; finishing the race at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris…the only cycling event apart from the Tour de France that the Arc de Triomphe closes for!

Day 1 London to Calais (129km): Leave the capital bright and early and head south through some of Kent’s finest scenery.
Day 2 Calais to Abbeville (120.9km): Through the beautiful fields and open countryside of the Pas de Calais region.
Day 3 Abbeville to Beauvais (106.9km): From the town of Abbeville through the Somme and Oise regions of Picardie.
Day 4 Beauvais to Paris (100.8km): The final stretch from Beauvais to Paris.
