Challenge Accepted! London to Paris in 24 Hours

Mirus are at it again! This time, seventeen brave souls will be attempting to cycle from London to Paris in 24 hours!

They will leave the English Capital on Saturday 23rd August and arrive in Paris the following day, hopefully within 24 hours!

The route is roughly 210 miles and the team will start at the London eye, roaming their way through the countryside to Newhaven to catch an evening ferry over to Dieppe. Once over the channel, the night riding will commence through the cathedral cities of Amiens and Beauvais before gloriously riding amongst the morning traffic, through the Arc de Triumphe and finishing at the Eiffel Tower.

This has been attempted before by a keen cyclist or two, and most arrive in more or less 24 hours…but we have set ourselves a strict 24 hour challenge time limit and we're hoping to roll into Paris with time to spare! Of course this means less stops and more saddle sores!
