Cycle from capital to capital in time to see the finish of the Tour de France!
Your 4 day adventure starts in London, cycling around 309 miles from London to Paris.
The route takes us through glorious English countryside as we cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais.
Once across the water, we cycle along the quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.
A spectacular finish awaits as you reach the home stretch, around the Arc de Triomphe and along the Champs Elysées, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks our finish line.
The days in the saddle may be long but the sense of achievement you’ll feel crossing the finish line and the euphoric atmosphere as we celebrate our achievements in this magnificent capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!
Registration for the challenge early morning in Croydon and start cycling at 7am through Kent to Dover. Ferry to Calais. Distance – 90 miles
Cycle from Calais to Arras through charming villages and along quiet country lanes. Distance – 77 miles
Cycle from Arras to Compiegne passing numerous WWI memorials and monuments through the Region of the Somme. Distance – 75 miles

The Tour de France will be reaching its climax today as it races through the streets of Paris. Ensure you grab your place on the Champs-Élysées to see some of the action before making your own way to Gare du Nord to catch the evening Eurostar to London where you will be re-united with your bicycle.
