News & blog Latest news Join the Bristol to Paris cheering station This year's dedicated team of 60 cyclists is leaving for the City of Lights on Friday 4th May. The 430km journey leaves from Ashton Court and will pass by the BRI before leaving Bristol for Paris. With a fundraising target of £150,000 for a new 3D ultrasound scanner for St Michael's Hospital, the group of cyclists includes parents of babies treated at the Fetal Medicine Unit, UH Bristol and Above & Beyond staff, long-time charity supporters and members of the community. You can help give the group an excellent send off on their challenge by joining the cheering station outside the BRI. The cyclists will pass at around 10am on Friday 4 May so, if you can spare a few minutes, we’d love to see you out there. French flags will be available on the morning for enthusiastic waving! Please email [email protected] or call 0117 3700 486 to let us know if you can make it. To find out more about the incredible challenge and how to donate, visit the Bristol to Paris page.
