The CARE Challenge series

The CARE Challenge series

Ride to Paris and raise money for a good cause

Leading overseas aid and development agency CARE International are delighted to announce the launch of the 2010 CARE Challenge Series.

CARE’s in-house challenge team will run two challenges for cycling fanatics next year: the CARE London to Brighton Cycle Challenge on 4 April, and the CARE London to Paris Cycle Challenge on 1-4 July.

Participants can enjoy 56 miles of idyllic English countryside between London and Brighton in a day, followed by a drinks reception and celebrations at Brighton’s marina. Or take on the hefty challenge of 230 miles to Paris in 3 days, culminating in a lap of honour around the aptly named Arc Du Triomphe and a champagne finish.

All funds raised will support CARE’s work in 70 countries, helping 55 million people find a route out of poverty. CARE is part of an international effort bringing relief to people in Indonesia following the recent earthquakes, and in Vietnam and the Philippines in the wake of typhoon Ketsana.

These events are a great reason to take your bike somewhere special. The events are doubly rewarding because part of the challenge is to raise vital funds for CARE, and the CARE Challenge Team are there to offer support and advice on fundraising too.

Anyone who signs up for the London to Paris event may enter the London to Brighton ride without fundraising, to help with your training!
