London - Paris (Gravel Route)
Route information
Split across 3 days from 19th-22nd September, cyclists will be taken past iconic sights and stunning views on this Tour de France-inspired event. The route will be gravel-based, travelling from Hampton Court Palace on the River Thames to the Seine, where riders will finish beneath the Eiffel Tower.
Riders will have a dedicated team to support them throughout the event, with Ride Captains, mechanics, sports therapists and logistics crew on hand to assist them.
Stage 1 Hampton Court to Newhaven
Distance 122k
Elevation 400m
This flat and fast stage following the Downs Link to the coast is a biggie, and with a ferry to catch it's an early start with all eyes on the prize. You'll hit urban gravel from the very start of the event before heading south.
Riders will finish their first day in the saddle by crossing the channel.
Stage 2 Dieppe to Vernon
Distance 140k
Elevation 1350m
On your second leg of the journey, and your longest day of riding, you'll see beautiful French scenes of poppy fields and rolling hills as you weave through farm tracks, bridal paths and gravel trails.
Stage 3 Vernon to Paris
Distance 114k
Elevation 1100m
If you've ever dreamt about being a Tour de France Pro before, this last leg will be your favourite part of the journey. After a tough 46k off-road you'll merge with the road riders at lunch and cycling into the centre of Paris on rolling closed roads as one giant peloton. There's nothing more iconic in cycling than the Eiffel Tower finish line, arriving the day before the Tour de France pros epic finish on the Champs-Elysees.
