Wetherby Prep is a local school for boys aged 2 1/2 to 18  in Marylebone. They have put together a team of 20 riders (parents from the school and headmaster Nick Baker) who will cycle from London to Paris on Friday 29th June 2018, which Velorution are sponsoring.

They will ride in aid for the following charities: Rwanda Aid (www.rwanda-aid.org), Auditory Verbal UK (www.avuk.org) and their school bursary fund.

Wetherby Prep explains:

“On Friday, 29th June 2018, Nick Baker will take morning assembly astride a road bike as he prepares to set off with 21 teachers and parents of Wetherby Prep on an epic bike ride to Paris. Leaving the iconic Marble Arch at 9am the team will hope to complete the challenge in 36 hours. Cycling almost 100km to catch the ferry at Newhaven for 5.30pm, the team will have a few short hours rest before embarking on a 180km dash for the Eiffel Tower. For many in the team, this will be a mammoth personal challenge, but together, we hope to roll into Paris with personal pride and shared delight in having raised a huge sum of money.”

"Training is well underway for the Parents’ Association London to Paris bike ride. A brave team of 20 members of the Wetherby community have starting dusting off their bikes and pumping up their tyres in preparation."
