Route information
A classic challenge for all road bike aficionados bucket-list.
Friday: This 120k route takes you from London to Newhaven via Brighton with a 1500m ascent. Starting at the London Eye, you will wind down through Surrey's country roads, then pass the famous Ditchling Beacon before arriving on the coast at Brighton. From here you will make your way along the coastline to Newhaven to catch the ferry over to Dieppe.
Saturday: After a short sleep over the channel, the cycle continues from Dieppe with 174k and 1450m climbing until Paris. The second half of the challenge sees the riders join the well-renowned Avenue Verte cycle route for 35k of traffic-free riding. After that, riders take on the final 124k to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. There will be plenty of opportunity to take some souvenir photos with the group. Then, head to the 4-star hotel to relax, have a shower, drink and evening meal.
Sunday: After a celebratory Saturday night, Sunday will offer a much needed day out of the saddle. Nevertheless, cycling is still the centrepiece and the group will watch the final stage of the 2020 Tour de France, before catching the Eurostar back to London.
