London to Paris Charity Bike Ride 2023

26: IMG 8363

In celebration of our 50th anniversary

Our team will cycle from London to Newhaven and on through the picturesque French countryside to finish in Paris, the location of Sucden Group's HQ. The ride will cover approximately 290km over two days and will be fully supported and guided by our specialist ride partner, Saddledrunk.

We aim to raise money for The Sucden Financial Community Fund, which is in partnership with the East End Community Foundation (EECF).

Update: The ride is now complete!

Huge congratulations to our team of riders, who, amongst other things, battled the elements to safely arrive at Trocadéro for a picture in front of the Eiffel Tower!

The team set off from our office in London early on Sunday morning for the circa 97km ride to Newhaven, catching a ferry and staying overnight in Dieppe.

Another early departure from Dieppe on Monday, they met with some colleagues from our group's head office along the way, and they all made the final stretch to Paris, arriving at Trocadéro to be rewarded with a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower, after cycling circa 174km.

So far, we have raised over £17,000 for the East End Community Foundation, which is absolutely amazing. You can still donate using the links below, take a look at some pictures and watch the video of our riders on their journey!

Well done to all involved!


Watch our riders on their journey from London to Paris!
