London to Paris Cycle Challenge

Cycle 230 miles alongside industry leaders during this epic three-day challenge!

The London to Paris bike ride is everything a good charity event should be. It’s very well organised and run, it’s challenging, a real test and as such it brings people together from across the industry and engenders a real camaraderie and fun. All bound by a common purpose - to raise money for our industry charity, GroceryAid (Jason Tarry, Chief Commercial Officer, Tesco plc)
