Once in Portsmouth board an overnight ferry to Caen, the resting place of William the Conqueror.

After waking up on the ferry, hop onto the European mainland for a full day of cycling through Norman cider country.

This evening is free, a perfect opportunity to explore this historic centre of learning and culture.

Day 3 - Évreux - Paris

The home strait of the trip, pedal through the beautiful country of Bas Normandie and the Île-de-France towards the City of Light. After a lunch stop in another tranquil village, Paris is in sight. Once in Paris proper, take in the sights from your saddle before reaching the finish line on the Champ de Mars, below the Eiffel Tower.
