From the beating heart of France to the sun-drenched Riviera, the Paris2Nice cycle challenge is a spectacular adventure in the home of some of Europe’s best cycling and scenery. It has it all – camaraderie, spirit, journey and on completion, a magnificent sense of achievement!
Paris2Nice incorporates a fundraising element and those who sign up to the 100-strong team endeavour to raise at least €3,000 for their chosen charity. In 2017, make a huge difference to patients of the Mater Hospital while you challenge yourself to ride 700 km over 6 days in the company of friends.
The route has been chosen to bring you as close as possible to the French countryside and traditional living. From quaint villages, to the Loire Valley, visiting Renaissance castles, and over Mt Ventoux – the famous Tour de France climb – inspiration exists on every bend and undulation of the road.
Riders will arrive in Paris on Friday 15 September, cycling out of the city the following day and six days later, on 21 September, arrive in Nice.
- Registration Fee: Early Bird price is €1,775 for a twin-sharing room, and €2,175 for a single room. (2017 Pricing is TBC – prices are indicative only)
- From July 1st, it will cost €1,875 for twin-sharing room and €2,275 for a single room
The participation costs are separate to the fundraising commitment which is a minimum of €3,000. The costs include bike transfer, 7-nights’ accommodation, as well as meals and snacks. The cost excludes flights and insurance, but there will be a coach transfer for selected flights.
