Do you want to do something truly extraordinary? Do you want to take on the challenge of a lifetime whilst raising money to tackle loneliness in Scotland? 

Then join Team Carr Gomm with this epic adventure and cycle all the way from London to Paris – a journey of 275 miles through southern England and Northern France.

There are many reasons to sit comfortably at home – it is warm, dry and safe. But that is not where memories come from. Taking on a new challenge with my Uncle is one of my best memories and it will never be forgotten. The best memories come from the best experiences.”

[Andrew, Team Carr Gomm challenge fundraiser]

What is this in aid of?

Team Carr Gomm is seeking to raise £60,000 via a team of at least 100 people, all doing something extraordinary, taking on a challenge and breaking down barriers. It's ultimate goal is to build connections; by encouraging people to take part in the campaign itself, and by raising money to fund activities and projects across Scotland which are bringing people together to tackle loneliness and isolation. 

We're delighted to partner with More Adventure to offer this fully supported and guided trip between two iconic capital cities. Take on the challenge and ask those you know to sponsor you to complete it.

About the challenge

It begins in Blackheath where you’ll cycle south-east into the Garden of England, Kent. You then catch a ferry from Dover to Calais where you spend the first night. Over the next three days you’ll cycle through quintessentially French countryside, quaint villages and beautiful roads to one of the most romantic cities in the world, finishing up under the legendary Eiffel Tower.

After a celebratory meal on Day 4, you’ll spend a night in Paris after which you’ll have a day to spend sightseeing in this incredible city. In the afternoon of Day 5 you’ll catch the Eurostar back to London where you’ll be met by the More Adventure team with your bicycles and luggage.

More Adventure have pulled together a full itinerary for the event along with further helpful information: download their info pack to read more. They have thought of everything to put you in the best position to complete this challenge which means all you need to do is be ready to cycle with your bike.
