Cross the channel in your saddle to support local people and their families – join #TeamStGiles for a London to Paris Bike Ride!
This promises to be a cycling experience you’ll never forget whilst making a real difference for people supported by your local hospice.
Standard edition | Various dates in 2021
You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling from capital to capital. Your journey begins in London, with your route taking you and hundreds of other cyclists through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel and continuing through the rolling green fields of Northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme. A spectacular finish awaits as you reach the pièce de résistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line.

You’ll ride along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling, green fields of Northern France, and pass the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme. The pièce de résistance of this incredible challenge will be the final cycle to the Arc de Triomphe and on to the Champs-Élysées.
This route follows in the tyre tracks of the cycling greats before they cycle the same route the very next day in the finale of the Tour de France!

“My father in law felt comfortable there and the staff were so attentive. I felt a cycle was a way I could give something back whilst doing something I enjoy.”
Phil Langham took part in his first Cycle St Giles event last September to thank staff for looking after his father-in-law before his death from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
“Cycling is a very sociable thing to do and knowing we were all riding for such a good cause gave us a real boost.
“I support St Giles Hospice because it’s such a lovely place. My father in law felt comfortable there and the staff were really good. They always did what they could to help and the nurses were brilliant, really attentive.”
Phil will be returning to ride at other cycling events for us this year and hopes you’ll join him. “I would definitely encourage people to take part in a cycling challenge for St Giles. It’s a great way to get some exercise and see the countryside and there’s a ride for people of all abilities – you can be as adventurous as you like!”
Join Phil by fundraising for St Giles and help us to support local people and their families living with a terminal illness.
