2007 London to Paris rider Rachel Przbylski has gathered a group of female cyclists, including Great Britain tri star Vanessa Raw for a London-Paris 2008 calendar displaying some pretty stunning photography from Michael Blann, complete with a touch of lycra. All profits from the sales of the calendars will go to charity.
Rachel Przbylski said: “The event itself was a challenge from start to finish and I raised over £5000, giving myself another challenge in the process….beat that figure next year! But, exactly how do you make people part with cash a second time round? Maybe a sweetener of some kind would work and so the idea of this calendar was born.”

The London-Paris is a rapidly growing cycle tour gaining an increasing number of riders and supporters year on year. It’s a fantastic challenge ride which promises to be ever tougher for 2008. Last year some of the strongest riders were women and Rachel Przbylski decided she wanted to make a display of just how strong the feminine side of the sport currently is.
