London to Paris Bike Ride – 18th Jul 2018 – 22nd July 2018
The London to Paris Bike Ride is an awesome cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe attracting hundreds of riders each year and raising thousands for charities nationwide. Whether you’re a regular cyclist or new to cycling, looking to participate as part of a group or a solo cyclist – this is the perfect charity cycle event for you. You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 308 miles from capital to capital. The journey begins in London with the route taking you through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water you start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right!, you push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.
A spectacular finish awaits as you reach the home stretch up the Champs Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks the finish line. For more info, please click on the following link:

Snowdon by Night – 9-10th June 2018
Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is synonymous with beautiful, rugged landscapes and wonderful trekking and outdoor pursuits. The highest mountain in England and Wales at 1085m, it is a popular trek by day-time and forms a real challenge by night. Standing at the summit by moonlight will be an unforgettable experience, as will seeing the sunrise from the mountain slopes. As the group descends, we will be able to see the spectacular landscapes open up before us as the day grow lighter. We celebrate our huge achievement with a slap-up breakfast!
