The Ride 40 Anniversary Fontainebleau to Richmond ride costs much the same as many London to Paris  charity cycle rides but, with a civic reception in France and a welcome home event when riders return to Richmond Borough,  it includes so much more.

A £250 deposit is payable on registration. This leaves a total fundraising target of £1400 which includes the remainder of your trip cost and your charity commitment.  You can start fundraising by activating your JustGiving page here.

We recognise that covering all the costs of the trip personally may not be possible for everyone and that some may need to fundraise to cover part of this cost. Please advise your sponsors if you will be doing this.

On arrival by coach, riders will be welcomed at a reception hosted by Fontainebleau’s Mayor and local representatives. Then the following day they will set off on their 263 mile journey.

Following Bed & Breakfast accommodation, snacks and lunches are served daily, with dinners arranged in Dreux and Rouen, and a mouth-watering buffet hosted by Richmond Civic Pride on return to the Borough.

Organised by award winning specialist tour operator, Discover Adventure, Ride 40 Anniversary includes cycle leaders, caterers, mechanics and support vehicles.

Note that riders are responsible for taking out their own travel insurance.
