This unique cycle challenge is set to be the most exciting cycling opportunity yet! The Roubaix Challenge is a fantastic 155 mile bike ride for charity, over two days from London to the beautiful town of Lille in Northern France. Lille is very close to the town of Roubaix, most famous for its epic pro cycle race, the Paris-Roubaix.

After your two day challenge to Lille, on Day 3 you have the option of taking part in the ‘Paris-Roubaix Challenge'; one day before the professional race, amateur cyclists can sign up to ride on the same route as the Paris-Roubaix elite cyclists.

The ride will offer some of the same cobbled sections that professionals face the next day and you can choose between three distances:

  1. 70km (approximate distance)
  2. 139km (approximate distance)
  3. 163km (approximate distance)

After completing your chosen route and after a well-earned rest, on Day 4 you are free to watch the pros ride and cheer your favourite riders as they race along the infamous pavés that you took on yourself the day before! This is always an exciting race as Paris-Roubaix remains one of the most memorable classics.

Trek to Angkor Wat

Choose from the following available dates:

12th Mar 2016 - 20th Mar 2016

5th Nov 2016 - 13th Nov 2016 

Lying in the heart of old Indochina, the small country of Cambodia is home to dazzling green rice-paddies and jungles dotted with temples and ruins, villages of thatched stilted houses, and small towns where Buddhist temples nestle amongst graceful French colonial buildings. Our charity challenge starts in Siem Reap, ideally situated to explore the ancient capital of the mighty Khmer Empire.

We trek for charity over the hills, through the valleys and dense forests of the surrounding area, ascending to the upper plain of Kulen Mountain. This region is rich not only in history, but in beautiful landscapes and the rural way of life, little changed for centuries. Our trekking charity challenge will be a hot and dusty, but the famous smiles of this remarkably friendly country will carry us on to our finish point at Angkor Wat, one of the most renowned and impressive sights in Southeast Asia.
