On 6 June a number of our readers embarked on a cycle between the two iconic cities to raise thousands for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. In these pictures we reveal those who could give Bradley Wiggins a run for his money.

On 6 June a number of our readers got on their bikes to raise thousands for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in a 400km London to Paris cycle ride sponsored by Catley Lakeman Securities, raising tens of thousands in the process.

It total 145 cyclists took part in the four-day event sponsored by Catley Lakeman Securities and spearheaded by former Crystal Palace and England footballer and blood cancer survivor Geoff Thomas, who was joined by ex-team mate Ian Wright.

Not to be shown up at his own event, Catley Lakeman founder Russell Catley put in the fastest time over five separate time trials – including three gruelling climbs – coming in a respectable 22nd place overall with a time just over one hour.

Here’s how the rest fared and some pictures from the gruelling challenge. Congratulations to all those involved.
