London to Paris

Wondering what it's really like? Below are some comments from people who have cycled from London to Paris to raise money Brake. They all had a fantastic time and raised thousands of pounds towards Brake's work. Thank you!

Andy Phillips
As a corporate donor to road safety charity ‘Brake’, Applied Driving Techniques in association with Inchcape Fleet Solutions took part in a London to Paris bike ride on the 5th May 2010 in order to raise further funds for the charity.

The brave volunteer, Andy Phillips from Applied Driving Techniques, experienced long days in the saddle and some strenuous hill-climbs as he connected two of the worlds most chic capital cities. 

If you’re interested in doing this event for Brake and would like to see Andy's diary of the event, email and she will happily forward it on.

"I am still running on adrenalin - it was absolutely wonderful!"

"Because the Brake fundraising t-shirt was Yellow and the Tour De France leader wears yellow, the photographer kept getting me to thefront of the photographs - which was good publicity for Brake!"

"They were all a real brilliant bunch of people, all doing it forthe right reasons. Got to know people really well, really quickly! I had a simply wonderful time!"
