LE TOUR -
ONE DAY AHEAD IS THE PINNACLE OF CYCLING EVENTS

With the goal of raising £1m for Cure Leukaemia, a team of 20 cyclists will ride the entire 2015 Tour de France event one day ahead of the professionals. You'll get the experience of riding with the same support as a pro-team: rolling road closures, team bus, service vehicles, motorcycle outriders, dedicated mechanics and full medical support as well as the cheers and support of the spectators already lining the course in anticipation of the Pros.

As a finale we'll stay two nights at a beautiful 5-star hotel in Paris to both celebrate the achievement, recover from the previous 21 days and also to watch the pros arrive the day after. A truly once in a lifetime, bucket list event, and one that will make a real difference to the inspirational and life-saving work of Professor Charlie Craddock, founder of Cure Leukaemia and Director of the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

  • 9 flat

  • 2 time trials
