Get on your bike to transform a life

TIME is running out to get a place on Canine Partners’ once in a lifetime cycling challenge.

The charity which trains assistance dogs in West Sussex that transform the lives of disabled people is calling for keen cyclists to get in gear and pedal from London to Paris.

The 270-mile trip will help the charity raise more cash so it can train more of its life-changing dogs that help with everyday tasks, boosting people’s independence and confidence.

The team will meet in London on September 14 before pedalling through spectacular British countryside towards Dover where they will get on a ferry to Calais.

During the next three days they will cycle from Calais to the historic town of Arras and then on to Compiegne Forest, which was the site where the armistices were signed ending both the First and Second World Wars.

The final furlong will take the cyclists into the capital city, past the Arc de Triomphe and on to the Eiffel Tower where they will get a well-earned rest and a chance for some sightseeing before heading back to London on the Eurostar.

The charity is still looking for more cyclists to take part.
