Join us on an amazing four day cycle challenge from the sandy beaches of Bournemouth, to the beautiful destination of Paris.
You’ll have an unforgettable long weekend as you cycle 296 miles through some of the best English and French countryside, passing through small villages, medieval market towns and the iconic Normandy Landing Beaches.
If you would like to take part and support Julia’s House, there are two ways you can get involved:
1. Pay a deposit of £199 and pledge to raise £1500*.
2. Self-fund the tour for £799 (pay a deposit of £199 to secure your booking and then pay the balance of £600). There’s no minimum sponsorship commitment, simply raise as much as you can.

Leaving Bournemouth Square, we take the coast road towards Christchurch and onwards through the picturesque New Forest, before bedding down for our last night on British soil in Portsmouth. After catching the morning ferry to Cherbourg, we hug the beautiful French coastline, taking in the Normandy Landing beaches. We then start to head inland, passing through some of Frances most stunning Northern countryside and villages. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower, our finishing point, will evoke a real sense of achievement. Our last day in Paris allows us to explore the sights and soak up the romantic atmosphere of this majestic city before heading back to London by Eurostar on the Monday. A coach will be waiting for you at St Pancras to take you back to Bournemouth and your bikes will be carefully looked after by our support vehicles.
Whether you’re an individual rider or looking to sign up as a team, this ride is not to be missed!
