Oveseas-cycle-imageThis cycling event runs over six days and although it seems like a long way off, you do need to plan, book holidays and raise sponsorship. This is an exciting opportunity to join other likeminded people raising funds for their chosen charity.You will pass through famous landmarks of Paris to quiet lakeside Geneva. Surrounded by mountains, this is a wonderful challenge linking two different cities. Leaving from the Eiffel Tower you will travel through Paris into the fields of wheat and sunflowers of rural France.

Your cycle culminates in the crossing of the beautiful Jura Mountains.  The gentle rolling hills that form much of the landscape en-route provide you with the perfect preparation for the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1323m), a climb that has featured many times in the Tour de France.

Brochure-Rider-440X297-2A wonderful descent takes you down the mountain into Switzerland.  After long days in the saddle and a challenging day in the Jura Mountains you will be happy to see Geneva and its beautiful lake.

The registration fee is £149 with a further £1650 to be raised in sponsorship.  You have a full year to raise your funds and this can be done in a variety of fundraising ways. Contact Linda on 0141 848 0308 or email linda.byars@hdscotland.org to receive your fundraising pack.
