Team Fortrus: London to Paris Bloodwise Training Ride June 2016

A brief stop to re-group.

Bloodwise London to Paris 2016 training ride starting the 110k loop from Mallory Park in Leicestershire.

Fantastic day meeting some of the other L2P riders and clocking up some miles leading up to the event in September.

About the event:

London | Paris is a four day endurance ride, covering the varied landscapes of Kent and northern France. It's one of the only London to Paris rides to offer rolling road closures throughout France. It's the only ride where all the money raised goes directly towards improving the lives of blood cancer patients.

Team Fortrus will ride as part of a peloton with time trial and timed hill climb sections, testing our ability to find out where we rank against the rest of the riders: it's the nearest thing to being in a professional road race. We'll ride to the Arc De Triomphe alongside a team of new found friends, under closed road conditions, cheered on by Bloodwise support crew and locals.

With every mile we cycle, together we’re closer to completing the ultimate challenge – beating blood cancer. 

Watch the video of the 2015 team that I was part of last year, 'shaking it off' and take a look at the Flickr gallery to get a taste of what the London | Paris ride is all about.

Please show your support by helping Team Fortrus to raise awareness in the fight against blood cancers, we will be holding various fund raising activities over the coming months to raise money and the link to our JustGiving page is outlined below.
