No matter if you’re a novice cyclist or expert, we are welcoming cycling enthusiasts of all abilities to join us in June for what will surely be a journey to remember. Starting off from the iconic Arc de Triomphe in Paris, we will travel through France to a ferry crossing to Portsmouth, followed by the challenging trek to Oxford, and our arrival at Blenheim Palace.

So please get in touch. Call me on 01865 742211 or 07774 257061 or e-mail: editorial@b4-business.com This is the first time many of us have done this sort of thing, so please don’t worry if you too are a novice. Guides will be allocated to the different ability groups so there’s absolutely no pressure on you! I look forward to hearing from you.

Even if you’re not able to join us, please do what you can to promote the ride to your friends and colleagues. Funds raised will be donated to our B4 Oxfordshire preferred charity Oxfam.
