Myeloma UK London Paris Ride 2020 Launch

London Paris Ride // 21st January 2020

Following on from last year’s success, when an incredible 105 cyclists raised over £195,000, Myeloma UK will once again be holding the London Paris Ride on Wednesday 16 – Sunday 20 September, 2020.

Registration for the 2020 Ride is now open and you can help make myeloma history by taking part in this unique pro-ride experience in France.

The Ride is open to anyone with any level of cycling ability, and riders can even use electric bikes to complete the journey. Riding in a peloton, participants will be flanked by motorcycle outriders, fully backed up by mechanics, remedied by sports physios and propelled forward by their very own support crew, making this the ultimate ride experience.

Rolling road closures ensure rider safely without stopping for traffic lights or junctions, and there are different speed groups led by experienced Ride Captains. Whichever speed group you choose, the London Paris Ride promises to be a memorable event for you, your family or for a team of your friends or colleagues.

After four days in the saddle and 500km on the road, participants will enjoy the rare and privileged finale of entering Paris in one huge peloton, riding around the Arc de Triomphe under police escort and then on to finish near the Eiffel Tower.

Riders are encouraged to sign up now for the early bird deposit of £249 available until 29 February 2020 with the remaining payment of £700 to be made by July 2020.

Speaking ahead of the 2020 registration launch, Marc Gordon, Chairman, Myeloma UK said:

“The London Paris Ride is an extremely rewarding experience and creates a unique sense of solidarity, with supporters coming together from the UK, Europe and across the world to help make myeloma history. Riders participating in the event will be raising money to help Myeloma UK support patients and their families through their myeloma diagnosis as well as funding world-leading genetics research to develop and discover new tailored treatments. By signing up to the ride you will be making a real difference to thousands of people across the UK living with a diagnosis of myeloma.”

Previous 2019 Ride participant, Brad Moning, from the USA said:

“Last year, riders from the UK and US came together as cycling comrades to conquer the challenges of the London Paris Ride. This year, Myeloma UK are once again extending the invitation to the rest of the world – you can join them as one global family and help raise money to support world-leading research into the causes and treatment of myeloma. These are very exciting and promising times for myeloma research and progress seems to be advancing exponentially. Let’s take it across the finish line and make myeloma history.”

Join us on the ultimate pro-ride experience and help make myeloma history.
