MES London to Paris


After undertaking the mammoth Coast to Coast challenge last year (174 miles in 3 days), we decided that we’d set ourselves an even tougher challenge for 2014.

And so, the idea of cycling 295 miles from London to Paris was born. Are we a bit crazy for undertaking another challenge? Probably. Will it mean a lot of training? Oh yes! Will it be a lot of fun? Definitely!

Leaving from Marble Arch on 4th September and arriving (hopefully with everyone in one piece) at the Arc de Triomphe on 7th September, we’ll be passing various sights of historical interest along the way. Of course we’ll also all enjoy the obligatory pint at the end of each stint but this year it will be Stella not Black Sheep!

We raised over £3500 last year for three different charities and want to raise even more this year for another fantastic cause. Our chosen charity this year is the brilliant Habitat for Humanity. We support their vision of everyone having a safe and decent place to live by eliminating housing poverty and homelessness worldwide.

So if you think you can get on board with team MES this year please click here to sponsor us.

We are again offering corporate sponsorship on our team shirts and so if you are able to donate at least £100 please also let us have your company logo. We will also promote you as a shirt sponsor and provide a link to your website from this page. But please remember any donation at all, no matter what size, is really appreciated.

Keep checking back to see how our training sessions are progressing and to see how we overcome the blisters and aching muscles. We will also be posting updates on our Facebook page and on Twitter.

Thursday 4 September – and they are off. The team have left London en route to Paris. Good luck guys.
