Dash MAX

The Duchenne Dash MAX

Edinburgh - London - Paris

Sunday 13th June - Saturday 19th June 2021

What is the DashMAX?

For 2021, the MAX is going to precede the Duchenne Dash, Duchenne UK’s signature VIP cycling event, a 24-hour ride from London to Paris. Starting in Edinburgh on Sunday 13th June, MAXers will embark on an 850KM journey over 5 days taking in some of the more picturesque roads down through the Scottish Borders in to England all the way to London, where we’ll join the Dash on Friday 18th June and continue on to Paris.

The MAX is a fully supported VIP cycling experience, for a small group of committed enthusiasts. As with the Dash, we offer experienced ride captains and a mobile bike mechanic whose service rivals that given to any pro-team. We have a medical team like no other, two dedicated physios who will work with you to keep you on the road and a medic who is always on hand. We provide all the food you will need to keep you fuelled, accommodation to keep you rested and a celebration not to be forgotten in Paris, overlooking the Eiffel Tower. And if this is not enough, we will make the necessary arrangements to get you and your bikes back to London.

We will be offering a range of packages, including the whole distance from Edinburgh to Paris (1,150KM), as well as shorter one or two day more flexible options, allowing you to join stages closer to your home, or for those with limited annual leave.

Getting involved

Places are limited. We can promise you the days will be long, the cycling will be magnificent, challenging and hugely rewarding, and you will meet some of the most amazing people all embarking on the same challenge, with the same objective – to raise money to END DUCHENNE.

We do all the thinking for you, we plan the route, food, rest stops, when you start and when you stop: even down to getting your bike back to the UK from Paris – so all you have to do is concentrate on the cycling and fundraising.

Fundraising

The DashMAX has significantly contributed to the £5 million raised through the Dash events over the last 8 years.

The 2017, 2018 and 2019 Dash events (including the MAX) each raised a staggering £1million and whilst 2020 has been challenging in more ways than one, the Dash at Home and Virtual Dash events successfully raised more than £400k.

Our plan for 2021 is to get back out on the road, get training and come back stronger than ever to raise as much as we can. Fundraising requests will be tailored for each package and we do ask cyclists to commit to raising these totals so we can hit our ambitious target.
