Sommet for the Weekend – Telegraph Cycling Podcast

Cycling London to Paris in 16 hours

This weekend we are off to Paris by bike, from our London home. Nick will be on the bike with The Velo House team and we will be supporting along the way. The idea is to get to Paris in 16 hours and to raise as much coin as possible for Sport Relief. If you […]
