D-Day Cycle Challenge

D-Day Cycle Challenge

From 18-23 June 2013 our incredible team took on a physical challenge with an historical twist and cycled over 500km from London to Paris to commemorate D-Day 2013.


Their exciting cycle challenge followed the path of an allied soldier, from London to Portsmouth and over the channel to the Normandy D-Day landing beaches, Arromanches and Pegasus Bridge.

Cycling on, they traced some of the region's most significant World War Two battle sites, most notably the Falaise Gap, the site of a crucial battle in August 1944.

Their historic journey came to an end as they celebrate the Liberation of Paris and pedalled towards their finish line under the Eiffel Tower. The team were accompanied throughout by expert battlefield guide Andrew Date of Battlefield Journey.

Check out the photos below of the team in action!

What others said about our cycle challenges

MAG's work is for an unequivocally good cause, so fundraising and training is easier than it seems at first. Once we started riding, the team spirit kicked in, so that everyone felt a part of something really special!
