London to Paris

13 - 16 June 2024

Join the peloton to Paris on one of Europe's greatest cycling adventures!

Passing through picturesque Kent countryside, we cross the Channel and continue through the small villages and medieval market towns of Northern France. With long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill climbs, the sight of the Eiffel Tower will evoke a real sense of achievement.

More about Action

Since we began in 1952, Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs to help save and change the lives of babies and children.

The prospects for finding new cures and treatments is almost within our grasp. Right now we are funding vital research projects with many more ready to go – but we simply can’t fund them all.

With your help, we’re determined to change this and make a real difference to children lives.
