Bon Voyage! London to Paris cyclists triumph

On the 14th September 2017, cyclists set off from Dairy Crest’s head office in Claygate on a 3 day, 230 mile journey to Paris. The cycle was a great success, raising more than £42k for GroceryAid, enough to provide 140 respite breaks for those with caring responsibilities.

Tackling intermittent weather conditions and climbing some treacherous ascents, the cyclists reached Paris in fine spirits at the Eiffel Tower before enjoying a welldeserved celebration dinner.

Our sincere thanks go to Warburtons for sponsoring this event, to Dairy Crest for a smooth start to the challenge. Finally our thanks go to the event planners pie, and to all the riders and companies that supported the London to Paris 2017 cycle challenge, it was a great success.

Reflecting on the challenge Mike Caddle, Booker Ltd commented: “Overall, the event was fantastic. Cycling as part of a team having the same goal was brilliant!”

Next year the London to Paris Cycle Challenge will take place from 13-15 September 2018. If you are interested in taking part in either of these events please contact events@groceryaid.org.uk or call 01252 875925
