Right to Play's Tour to London

Right To Play's three day 300 mile cycle ride from Tours, France to London, will incorporate one day watching a crucial stage of the Tour de France race, providing riders with not just a charity ride but an all-round cycling experience. Riders will then embark on the 300 mile cycle back to London taking in the beautiful national parks and picturesque villages of Northern France before boarding the overnight ferry from Caen to Portsmouth. This ride also gives participants the chance to cycle alongside pro cyclists; previous years have included Mark Cavendish, Leigh Howard, Chloe Hosking and Andy Fenn.

Specialized are proud to have Right To Play as our charity partner and excited to be supporting their annual bike ride for the third year running. These charity cycle rides raise funds for their programmes that use the transformative power of play - playing games and playing sport - to educate and empower children facing adversity all around the world.

Right To Play's 2012 ride gave riders the chance to experience a prologue stage of the Tour de France in Liege, Belgium before setting off from Holland to London riding alongside pro cyclist Andy Fenn, raising over £180,000 for children around the world. Right To Play's 2013 ride is set to be even better so check out all the details and sign up to the Right to Play's Tour to London today.
