Organised by Sophie Radcliffe, founder of Challenge Sophie, who has teamed up with Cycle Hub regular Jonathon Friend, who runs a Cycle Tour company Cycle Friendly, this promises to bea demanding yet satisfying event starting from the Greenwich Observatory at 4pm ( 3 pm GMT)on 2 May and, via an overnight Newhaven to Dieppe ferry crossing finishing at 5pm local time (3pm GMT) underneath the Eiffel Tower. Matt and Ian will be manning the van, getting lost in France, providing mechanical support to the riders and attempting to keep the Hub’s facebook page updated!

How Can You Help?
Watford Cycle Hub at this relatively early stage in its life, without external funding, depends heavily on support from volunteers. These committed individuals help with all manner of things from running bike maintenance courses, stripping down and rebuilding up donated bikes through to ‘front-of-house’ duties, cleaning and making coffee, all of which are equality important, but we could always do with more. Can you help?
