The London to Paris Bike Ride is an awesome cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, attracting hundreds of riders each year and raising thousands for charities nationwide.
You’ll spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 309 miles from capital to capital. Your journey begins in London with the route taking you through the glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water, you’ll start cycling ‘French style’, remembering to keep to the right! You’ll cycle along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of Northern France, passing the war memorials and cemeteries of the Somme.
A spectacular finish awaits you as you reach the home stretch around the Arc de Triomphe and along the Champs Elysées, before reaching the piece de resistance, the Eiffel Tower, which marks your finish line! The days in the saddle may be long but the sense of achievement you’ll feel crossing the finish line and the euphoric atmosphere as you celebrate your achievements in this magnificent capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!
