London to Paris Cycle 2020

15–19 July 2020 | 300 miles

One of Europe's greatest cycling experiences

LIMITED TIME ONLY - 50% off registration using code GOSHEARLYBIRD

Take part in the ultimate cycling adventure - the London to Paris challenge. The pièce de résistance? Cycling through central Paris in convoy and watching the pro-peloton battle for victory on the Champs Èlysèes in the final stage of the Tour de France.


Our four-day challenge covers 300 miles of beautiful countryside, through the picturesque hills of Kent and the stunning villages of northern France.

Starting in Chessington, Greater London, the route weaves its way out to the coast along country roads, passing through picturesque market towns and the rolling Surrey Hills. Once across the channel, immerse yourself in the French countryside with peaceful hamlets and wooded valleys paving the way. On day four, the finish line awaits in the shape of the iconic Eiffel Tower...what better way to finish such an incredible challenge!


Registration: £65 (50% off using code GOSHEARLYBIRD)
