I was looking to to organise my own london to paris cycle ride with my friends and family. I was wondering how hard this is and what you need to start it up. The questions im looking to be answered are 1. do you need a doctor or physio with you 2. would you need a support vehicle with spare parts? 3. if so is there people that you can hire for the ride.
Hope you can help

Providing you are all reasonably fit individuals, and do an adequate amount of training then you won’t need a doctor with you for a personally organised trip. if there are a large number of you planning to do this then you would be obliged to arrange this.
As for a support vehicle – don’t bother. Just grab a decent pannier rack and bag and carry them with you.October 8, 2014 at 11:50 #729
I am planning to do the London to Paris via Newhaven route (3 day or 4 day route) April 2015
Ideally i'd like to be in paris for my 40th (26th April) but open to doing it a little earlier or later.
Would like to ride with at least one other. – I'm a bit of a newby to this. (Building up at the moment by around 10 miles each month) I Live in Central Scotland. Please get in touch.October 24, 2014 at 13:53 #734
Debbie – I wish to do the London to Paris Bike Ride but not for charity. I am keen on organising a group. Ideally we would need someone to do backup – take the luggage, be around for any problems and perhaps provide the picnics. Usually there is someone who is happy to do this for having their trip paid for but I am open to suggestions.October 29, 2014 at 17:07 #735
I'm also looking to do London – Paris in 2015 (don't care when as long as not too cold) at a reasonably leisurely pace (60-70 miles a day), possibly along the Route Vert. Would prefer an informally organised group (I cleaned out all my friends doing a charity ride last year) but having someone as backup would be ideal.
I do parlez a bit of the local lingo, not well but enough to get by, which may be a help

Lesley and Rob sounds good. Where are you based and does April work? I think back up vehicle isn't really needed if only doing 50-100 miles each day but the reassurance of another person on the route would be great. Weegiewoman@gmail.com is my email if you fancy chatting it over.
