La Grande Aventure Cycle
4 days 3 countries 200 miles 1 great cause

Wouldn't it be incredible to go on an exciting adventure while making an almighty difference to the children at Pace? 'La Grande Aventure' is an ideal cycle challenge for novice through to pro riders. This 4 day adventure starts from Pace in Aylesbury, travels across England, France and into Belgium finishing in the beautiful town of Ypres.

Ypres was heavily bombarded during the First World War and has a number of interesting things to see. The most important site is the Menin Gate, one of the Memorials to the Missing, where every evening the Last Post is played by buglars which is a very moving experience.
