Register for the Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge 2019 Cyclists of all abilities will tackle a 470km route which takes in Andover, Portsmouth, Le Havre and Gourney en Bray before finally arriving in Paris. The flagship fundraising event takes place from Wednesday 11 September to Sunday 15 September with the aim to raise £150,000 for all nine city centre hospitals within UH Bristol Trust. The September start provides an opportunity to train through the summer months and gives the cyclists more time to reach the individual fundraising target. Participants will be supported with a series of group training rides, expert nutrition and bike maintenance support, and fundraising tips and advice from our team.
