Itinerary

Pre-Event

We board the evening train to Paris on the Eurostar. Your bikes will be driven out to Paris by our support crew, and so all you need to worry about is getting to the station on time.

The rest of our crew will meet you in Paris and you will have the opportunity to discuss the ride over dinner. You will have a short briefing in preparation for the following day.

Day 1 – Paris to Beauvais (95km)

Paris La Defense

After a hearty breakfast, we make our way out of Paris, along tree-lined avenues and past famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. Before you know it, we are cycling through the Bois de Boulogne and past the business district of La Défense.

We gradually climb out of Paris, and soon find ourselves in the glorious French countryside, passing through forests and along farmers’ fields. There will be three refreshment stops during the day, before cycling into the town of Beauvais and our first overnight stop.

Day 2 – Beauvais to Dieppe (118km)

This is our longest day in terms of distance with most of it downhill as we make our way to the coast.

The morning is spent cycling through picturesque villages and along quiet country lanes, before our first refreshment stop. From here it’s just a few hours cycling to lunch, and then it’s onto a wonderfully long downhill all the way along the Avenue Verte to the port of Dieppe.

We arrive in time to get changed, before boarding the ferry for the crossing to the UK. Dinner is taken on-board the ferry. On arrival into Newhaven we cycle or take a transfer to our hotel.

Day 3 – Eastbourne to London (113km)

EastbourneThe final day! After a comfortable night’s sleep, it’s time to pull on the bib-shorts for the last time as we gradually make our way to London. The morning is spent riding along flat terrain, before the real climbing starts as we hit the South Downs.

Much of the day is spent climbing and descending through Sussex and Surrey, before the final push over the North Downs to the afternoon tea stop. It’s all downhill from here as we make our way into central London and a well-earned celebration meal!
