Transaid London to Paris Charity Challenge 2017

London To Paris

Over  £6,200 raised for Transaid in September 2017!

240 miles over 3 days from London to Paris...

Steve, Gary and Dean from SEC Storage cycled from London to Paris in aid of Transaid, over 3 days in September 2017.


Departing from London on Friday 22nd September, they embarked on a 240 mile ride over 3 days, finishing at the iconic Eiffel Tower on Sunday 24th.


This challenging route took the riders through the rolling English countryside (including the infamous Bexley Hill) and the breathtaking panorama of northern France.


They had the aim of raising £5,000 for Transaid and have to date raised over £6,200! To help them raise more donate via JustGiving™ by clicking here.

Meet the Riders

Steve Watts - London to Paris


Steve Watts is Managing Director of the SEC Group. Steve occasionally cycles to the office but otherwise isn't an athlete. The London to Paris is not only a great way to raise money for Transaid, but a personal challenge too...

Gary Kirk - London to Paris


Gary Kirk is Project Sales Director for SEC Storage. Gary is a keen runner, regularly completing 10km+ runs and has previously run a half marathon. Donning a helmet and lycra will be a new experience, for all!

Dean Kahl - London to Paris


Dean Kahl is Marketing Manager of the SEC Group. Although a keen bike rider, it's a mountain bike! Hanging up the body armour and full face helmet in exchange for lycra means he's been disowned by his mates!
