Paris2Nice is a unique and exceptional non-competitive charity cycle that raises much needed funds for charities throughout Ireland. Paris2Nice is designed to be unlike any other charity events and we want the experience of Paris2Nice to be an extraordinary life-changing event for each participant. Totalling just over 700km in 6 days, the participants range in age, fitness levels and cycling experience – we welcome all levels of ability. With regular and gradual training and the support of the Paris2Nice team, we guarantee that you will not only complete the challenge but love the experience too.
This year, we have added a second week for Paris2Nice to cope with demand. This is a fantastic achievement on the tenth anniversary of the first cycle. The route, fundraising and training will be exactly the same. The first event (Paris2Nice Bleu) takes place from the 11th - 17th September 2020, and the second (Paris2Nice Rouge) takes place from 18th - 24th September 2020. Both trips are starting off in the beautiful city of Paris and finishing on the iconic Promenade des Anglais in Nice.
Fundraising is an important aspect of the Paris2Nice experience and as well as paying for their own participation costs, all participants must raise a minimum of €3,000 for their own chosen charity. Previous Paris2Nice participants have fundraised beyond their expectations and in the past 9 years upwards of 400 amateur cyclists have raised over €4,000,000 for multiple charities. This exceptional level of fundraising was achieved through the support and encouragement of other team members and the Paris2Nice organisation.
The Paris2Nice charity cycle is organised by Paris2Nice CLG a not-for-profit organisation providing infrastructure and support to enable individuals and charities to participate in the annual organised cycling challenge from Paris to Nice.
