London to Paris Bike Ride June 2018
On June 8th and 9th, a group of parents and friends of the Barnes Primary School, a brave group, undertook an epic bicycle journey to Paris - attempting to leave their school in Barnes and arrive in Paris within 24 hours.
For some, the journey was a fun ride that fits with their current fitness level. For others of us, it was an intense couple of months of training, culminating in the biggest physical challenge of our lives.
Our aim is to raise money to support two very worthy causes. We are supporting the local school that has brought us together, Barnes Primary, and a Richmond upon Thames charity, Skylarks , which provides activities and therapies for children with disabilities and additional needs.
We hope you will support our efforts and our journey to raise money for these local charities. Follow us on Facebook.
UPDATE - June 9th, 2018: THANK YOU! Not only have we achieved our goal and arrived in Paris after a long and hot cycle ride, but we hit our fundraising target for Skylarks and Barnes Primary through the generosity of all of our supporters. Thanks to everyone who made a contribution, and for those who have not yet, there is still time to support our challenge!
