Cycle for your hospitals

Over the last five years, the annual Bristol to Paris Cycle Challenge has seen 336 intrepid cyclists take on the challenge, cycling a total of 146,000 kilometres and raising the incredible sum of more than £746,000.

The registration fee for the 2020 challenge is £150, with a fundraising target of £2,000. Our fundraising team will be on hand to offer advice, materials and anything else you might need to help you smash the target.

Your fundraising will go to the area of greatest need within Bristol’s hospitals. If you would like the money you raise to go to a specific hospital please let us know.

The challenge

Next year's event will take place from Wednesday 9 to Sunday 13 September, with the four days' cycling ending with a triumphant arrival in Paris on Saturday 12 September.

From there you will have an exceptional celebration meal and stay in central Paris. On Sunday you will have the morning to explore the French capital before travelling back to Bristol. All accommodation, food and transport back to Bristol is provided.

The challenge is open to all abilities - from beginner to elite cyclists. Guided training rides, nutrition advice and fundraising tips are all provided by the Above & Beyond team.


Want to self-fund your place? There is the option to pay your own costs for this trip, and really concentrate on the fundraising. Once you’ve signed up and paid your registration fee, get in touch about self-funding, and we’ll send you everything you need to know!
