One of Europe's greatest cycling experiences

24–28 July 2019 | 300 miles

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 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 in Paris awaits in the shape of the iconic Eiffel Tower...what better way to finish such an incredible challenge!

The event is organised by Discover Adventure. You can find out more information on their website. 

Registration: £130

Minimum fundraising: £1,600
