Over the Easter weekend we cycled over 200 miles from London to Paris, cycling from Trafalgar Square to Newhaven, taking the overnight ferry to Dieppe and getting back on our bikes at 3am for another three days of cycling to Paris. We organised the trip independently rather than as part of an organised tour so that we could make sure that every penny of sponsorship we raised goes directly to the organisations we want to support. We covered our support costs ourselves.
The trip was a lot of fun, and we were really lucky to have good weather for most of it – but also hard work! The Eiffel Tower on Easter Sunday was a very welcome sight.
