Route information
Day 1 - Friday (65 miles)
Meeting at Carlton House in St. James, just a stone's throw from Charing Cross Station, riders will head to Trafalgar Square to commence their adventure. The group will head towards Brighton on unfrequented roads cutting through the East Sussex countryside before reaching the popular road hill climb of Ditchling Beacon.
You will then turn towards Newhaven, riding east along white cliffs, with panoramic sea views. Once the leg is completed, the group will assemble for a well-deserved dinner before embarking on an overnight ferry across the Channel.
Day 2 - Saturday (75 miles)
For the first day of the French leg of the journey, the group will embark early and tackle the gently inclining Avenue Verte track. After reaching the charming Forges-les-Eaux, you will be able to enjoy a lovely breakfast before your ride takes you through several French towns and villages. Immerse yourself in the history of the region as you whizz past monuments and landmarks.
Arriving at Beauvais in the early afternoon, there is free time allocated to explore the buzzing city and its points of interest before recovering for Day 3.
Day 3 - Sunday (50 miles)
The final leg brings riders through stunning vistas of the French countryside before they reach the capital. Sightsee and cycle as you ride past landmarks including the Victor Hugo fountain and Trocadero. There will be plenty of photo opportunities, including when the group reaches the endpoint of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
After completing the ride, participants can celebrate their achievement by enjoying a drink or meal in one of Paris' famous bars and restaurants.
