Route description
Route description

Upon arrival in Calais, you’ll head out along the cliff-top coast roads that test the legs straight away – you’ll climb to a vantage point that, on a good day, you can see back to England set against a backdrop of the ever-busy to-and-fro of boats and ships sailing on the Channel. Before long, up turns to down, and you’ll be employing your best descending technique to drop into Escalles – but don’t forget this steep hill as it’ll be the last thing you have to conquer before reaching the finish line later in the day.

Dropping into the Parc naturel régional des Caps et Marais d'Opale, a counter-clockwise loop ensues as you ride through pretty and sleepy French villages like Caffiers, Fiennes and Bazinghen. Many of the back roads that connect these communes are littered with grape fields and small farms – but best of all, nearly no cars – at no point will you forget you’re in France.

After the last climb back to Calais, you'll have a perfectly flat 7-mile run to the finish, which is at the Calais Ferry port itself. A finishers medal will be given to you before you board the next ferry back to Dover with your sense of adventure and exploring spirit fulfilled. Food and showers will be available on the Ferry.
