Cahors Challenge 2022

Published on Wednesday 30th March 2022

Together we have raised £4,449,412 since 1996, which has all been donated to Charity, with our Mont Ventoux Challenge 2019 raising £130,000.

Teams will leave Portsmouth on the 20h15 Brittany Ferry sailing to St Malo on Wednesday 28th September, arriving at 08h15 the following morning. Challenge Adventure Charities will organise the ferry for your team and vehicle with cabin accommodation for all.





Thursday 29 September: Saint Malo - Angers

We start cycling from under the historic walls of the maritime city of St Malo, heading from Brittany through parts of Normandy before turning South to cross the Loire to our first nights’ rest in a holiday village near Angers.

Friday 30th September: Angers - Limoges

After an early breakfast on Day 2, we will follow the Loire through Saumur and then the Vienne and finally the Creuse river valley taking us South to Limoges.

Saturday 1st October: Limoges - Cahors

From Limoges we continue South to the source of the Dordogne, passing Rocamadour to the finish in Cahors, home to the French Malbec wine, revered by Tzars, Popes and Princes.

Teams will be made up of ‘extra’ ordinary people, rising to a physical challenge and raising money for Charity through personal and corporate sponsorship. All that is required is the legs and stamina to ride your share of 500 miles and the commitment to raise a minimum of £1,000 for Charity, half of which can be donated to Charities of the team’s choice, with the remaining half going to Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and NHS Charities Together.

100% of what is raised by teams will be donated to Charity, as your entry fee fully covers all costs, so there is no dilution. Please link your fundraising to ours

Entry fee

The entry fee (£1,400.00) is for a team of 4 and covers the outbound ferry with cabin, 3 nights half board accommodation in France and the support of our band of Marshalls. Teams will travel in their own support vehicle and typically ride on road racing bikes.
