How fit do I need to be?

You don't need to be a fitness fanatic to do this challenge. The majority of people on the trip will be just like you and will not necessarily have done anything like this before. However to get maximum enjoyment from the challenge training is vital and we will provide you with a detailed training plan which we strongly recommend you stick to. We will also be on hand every step of the way to provide training advice.

Will I be able to raise the sponsorship level?

YES! Once you have started you will find that raising the minimum sponsorship is easy and most importantly fun! We will provide you with a breakdown of examples of how to raise the sponsorship money in an enjoyable way and we will of course be available every day to help you with more ideas! You are doing something quite simply amazing so make sure you tell everyone you know, and before you know it you will be racing towards your fundraising target!

Can I extend my trip?

No. Unfortunately due to Eurostar restrictions we are unable to change any tickets.

Will you help me?

YES! One of our highly experienced tour reps will be on hand to help you in the lead up to the event. You will be sent a full confirmation pack shortly after you register on the event which will give you all the information you need but we are always here to make the event as enjoyable and hassle free as possible! And there will even be the opportunity to meet your fellow participants at a special gathering before the event!

What is the food like?

Lots of familiar European dishes will be on the menu! Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided throughout the trip except for 2 meals (dinner on the ferry on day 1 and lunch in Paris on our final day). We can of course cater for vegetarians and other dietary requirements - as long as you let us know in advance!

What do I need to bring?

You will need to bring your own bike; we strongly recommend using either a road, hybrid or touring bike NOT a mountain bike. It is also compulsory to wear a cycle helmet whilst on our trips. We will send you a full packing list for the trip once you have registered.

What will happen to my luggage during cycling days?

There will be support vehicles with the group at all times which means your luggage will be transported in one of these vehicles for you. You will just need to carry a bum bag for any essentials like a camera and sun tan lotion
