London to Paris in 24 Hours – Rupert Englander – 05-05-2018

London to Paris is a fairly iconic ride, and because of that many keen cyclists have it on their bucket lists as something to get ticked off along the way. The idea of leaving one capital city and arriving in another, especially one as iconic as Paris and the Eiffel Tower is particularly popular which is evident by the number of different 5-day and 3-day events that exist in the calendar.

One slightly less well-known event is London to Paris in 24 Hours which is run by only a few organisers each year. In the case of Rupert Englander, he embarked on the 24-hour challenge as a rider on the ChallengeSophie event, and he wrote up the ride in a well covered and detailed post here.

Taking a slightly more direct route from London to Newhaven, Dieppe to Paris, the ride still covers 300KM and 2,500 meters of climbing, all which has to be done within the 24 hours.

Rupert’s celebratory stance under the Eiffel Tower is a fairly iconic look, and the smileon his face says it all. Chapeau!
