World Cup Bike Ride 2023: Paris To Bordeaux

04 September 2023 - 11 September 2023 Paris to Bordeaux

Join us on this incredible 5 day, 380 mile cycling challenge from Paris to Bordeaux.


After landing in Paris, we will explore picturesque settings of the French Gâtinais Regional Natural Park and cycle routes closely following the Loire River. Poitiers and Angouleme are among other areas we will cycle through before reaching our end destination and finish line in Bordeaux. This final evening will welcome everyone to a celebration evening complete with dinner, speeches and the chance to reflect on an incredible achievement for an amazing cause. Ahead of returning the UK, participants will remain in Bordeaux for Wales’ opening World Cup Game against Fiji (Plans for this evening are yet to be confirmed due to match tickets not being released until September 2022 and the possibility of an alternative private event being planned for all participants to enjoy the game).

Every penny and each mile will help raise vital funds for Velindre Cancer Centre and in turn, help provide Hope for more cancer patients and families in Wales.
