Paul’s House to Paris Cycle Challenge 2022

When: Thursday 12 May 2022 - Sunday 15 May 2022

Where: Paul's House, London

In 2022 we’re running a one of a kind, totally unique cycling challenge!

The traditional London to Paris is one of the very best cycling experiences, taking in two of Europe’s most iconic cities. But this challenge is extra special…

The challenge

This totally unique cycling challenge will start at our London Home from Home, Paul’s House.

Pauls House To Paris Logo Paul’s House is a haven for families when their child is going through cancer treatment. It’s free, and just a ‘slipper walk’ from the principal treatment centre which is often many miles from a family’s own home. It allows young cancer patients to be close to their families at a difficult time, when they need each other most.

For every £38 you raise, you could be paying for a family to stay in a Home from Home, just like Paul’s House for one night.

After setting off from Paul’s House you’ll pedal your way through the beautiful British and French countryside, before a hero’s finish at the Eiffel Tower.


Day 1: Paul’s House to Newhaven – 65 miles (approx)

We start our trip being waved off at Paul’s House, heading south across the downs to really get the legs moving. As the roads begin to get flatter, we approach Newhaven, where we will board the ferry to France!

Day 2: Dieppe to Beauvais  – 70 miles (approx)

Bienvenue en France! We’ll leave our overnight stop in Dieppe, tackling the rolling hills of Northern France. We’ll pass through miles of open countryside all the way to our last stop before Paris, in the historic town of Beauvais.

Day 3: Beauvais to Paris – 50 miles (approx)

Our last day and the adrenaline will be pumping from the start! As we make our way into Paris, we’ll follow the river Seine for some time, winding through the city before our final push onto the Tower, where the celebrations commence.

Day 4: Free day in Paris before Eurostar back to UK where we will be reunited with our bikes.

Please note, due to the nature of the challenge, these complex itineraries are subject to change.
