I’ve always been one for a challenge of one sort or another.
Inspired by the brilliant Sean Conway, Sophie Radcliffe and Donald Hirsch, the idea of cycling from London to Paris in under 24 hours seemed like a good one to take on to celebrate my 40th birthday this summer.
So last weekend we hit the road out of London and rode to Paris. And we made it in under 24 hours too, having a brilliant time along the way.
I’ve shared more details about our trip, routes, experiences, kit list and more on a dedicated page at www.simonwakeman.com/london-to-paris-by-bike-in-24-hours/.
If you’d like to know more details about cycling from London to Paris in under 24 hours, drop me a line.
The experience has certainly got me thinking about next year’s cycling challenge – it’s amazing what you can pack into 24 hours on your bike.
