Registration fee: £199

The London to Geneva Cycle combines the iconic London to Paris and Paris to Geneva cycling challenges to make one ultimate challenge!

Cycle through the beautiful somme region, watch the final stage of the Tour de france live in the heart of Paris and discover unspoilt French countryside and famous vineyard regions.You will conquer a Tour de France Col-Col de la Faucille (1,323m) and celebrate you finish in style beside the famous Lake Geneva. 

The challenge is open to anyone over the age of 18 and takes approximately 10 days. This cycle is one of our more extreme challenges but is achievable providing you have trained correctly beforehand. You will be cycling for 4 consecutive days to Paris, enjoy a rest day, then continue with another 4 consecutive days of cycling to Geneva. You can expect to be in the saddle for an average of 7-8 hours a day. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy this challenge. A full training guide will be provided in your welcome pack when you register with Global Adventure Challenges. 

There are two different payment options for this challenge:

OPTION A – Raising a Minimum Sponsorship
