About the Challenge

Our iconic five-day bike ride will mark the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings and remember the sacrifices made by brave servicemen and women. Starting Sainte-Mere-Eglise we’ll cycle through Normandy, visiting the D-Day beaches, including Omaha, Gold and Juno. We’ll also visit other key historical areas including Bayeux, Lisieux, Evreux and many more before ending in Paris. With around 400km over four days in the saddle this will be a cycle challenge to remember!
