Paris to Geneva Cycle Challenge

3rd - 8th September 

Distance: 325 miles

Registration fee: £149

Minimum Sponsorship option: £1850

Self-Funding option:  £925 + Raise as much sponsorship as possible 

This exciting, short cycling challenge links the two classic cities of Paris and Geneva, crossing the border with a fabulous climb in the beautiful Jura Mountains. 

The route will take you south-east from Paris, crossing rolling chalk hills, quiet woodland and rural plateaux. The landscape is dotted with small medieval towns and Romanesque churches as you cycle through the famous vineyard region of Burgundy. 

Skirting Dijon, we head to the Roman spa town of Lons-le-saunier, at the foot of the Jura. Your legs will feel well-prepared as you tackle the hair-pin bends of the Col de la Faucille (1232m), your gateway into Switzerland and the toughest part of the challenge. You will finish beside the lake in beautiful Geneva.
