London to Paris Cycle Challenge

Join our journey from London to Paris, one of Europe's greatest cycling experiences.

25–29 July 2018 | 300 miles

Take part in the ultimate cycling adventure, the London to Paris challenge. The pièce de résistance? 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 London, the route weaves its way out to the coast along the 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!
