GoodLaw Solicitors partner Warren Moore is participating in a charity bike ride from Dieppe to Paris for RISE.
Warren and Rebecca Brett will do the 235km bike ride over 4 days starting on the 12th of October 2022, with GoodLaw supporting their effort.
The charity: RISE
We have long supported survivors of domestic abuse and RISE is a wonderful charity that does the same. RISE stands for Refuge, Information, Support and Education. They have spent 27 years working to end domestic violence against women, their families and those in the LGBQT+ community.
The Sussex-based charity is sometimes the first call people make after suffering abuse. They help over 2,000 people a year, mainly in the Brighton and Hove area.
RISE provides a helpline, specialised case workers for those in the LGBTQ+ community, disabled and elderly case worker specialists, as well as a wide variety of support services for survivors of abuse.
The work they do is very important with Warren and Becki proud to be cycling the route from Dieppe to Paris for RISE.
The route: Dieppe to Paris
Warren and Becki will start the ride on the 12th of October in Dieppe and end their journey in Paris. They will end up in the French capital on the 16th of October after 4 days of riding through France.
The route will be 235km (146 miles) across the French countryside, avoiding main roads. They will cycle on average 60km a day, with the route being split into 15 stages.
- Stage 1: Dieppe – on the French coast, a short trip along the seafront before heading inland
- Stage 2: Arques-la-Bataille – a lovely tarmacked path leading to an old railway
- Stage 3: Forges-les-Eaux – beautiful little town with a traditional French market square
- Stage 4: Gournay-en-Bray – the entry into the quiet countryside of Praysde Bray
- Stage 5: Saint Germer de Fly – a stunning Benedictine abbey is being restored here so might be worth a short diversion!
- Stage 6: Neuf Marché – a small village, but the steepest climb since Dieppe
- Stage 7: Gisors – this is the first step into Vexin, a relatively rural (and flat) Provence
- Stage 8: Bray et Lu – a 12-mile railway path through the Epte valley
- Stage 9: Theméricourt – a hard climb up to Courdimanche awaits
- Stage 10: Cergy – our entry into greater Paris
- Stage 11: Conflans Sainte Honorine – approaching the confluence of the rivers Seine and Oise we will head into Paris
- Stage 12: Rueil Malmaison – a few chic cafes will be hard to resist
- Stage 13: Gennevilliers – the port area will be decidedly busier than anything experienced up to now
- Stage 14: Saint Denis – pedestrian traffic might be an issue near the final stage around the canals
- Stage 15: Notre Dame – four days of cycling end at the famous beautiful cathedral
