London to Paris: a send-off by the new Mayor of London

Some of the intrepid Fund4Trees London to Paris cycling team received a fantastic early send-off by recently appointed Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, last night. The ride proper starts on the morning of Saturday 28th May. The final destination is the 99th French Mayor’s conference in Paris on Tuesday.

The riders posed with Sadiq Khan on the Wandering Tree mural, part of the Charter for trees, woods and people campaign led by Woodland Trust. We are grateful to Craig Harrison, Forestry Commission, for helping organise the send-off, and to Matt Larsen-Daw for the photographs.


Trustees of Fund4Trees will be cycling 285 miles, from London to Paris, to promote our charitable work. The trustees will be joined by representatives of national tree professional bodies. The goal is to deliver a French translation of Trees and Design Action Group’s (TDAG) latest document Trees in Hard Landscapes, which Fund4Trees supported. The ride also aims to promote new regular giving schemes for those working in arboriculture. Find out more.
