Challenge details

A classic and well thought out 280 mile route from Greenwich to central Paris using a mix of fast, direct roads and small country lanes.

Riding from one exciting captial to another in just 4 days we are sure this unique challenge will inspire and enthuse the experienced and the newcomers alike.

From the fantastic views from Greenwich Park we enjoy the delights of the Kent countryside, alongside the North Downs and on to the famous white cliffs of Dover.

On the French side we cycle through the beautiful Pas de Calais area, glimpse poppy fields and stay in charming French villages. Taking in the picturesque Picardy countryside on our approach to Paris, we really get going! Downhill into central Paris, passing the Arc de Triomphe and along the Champs Elysees to the finish! You will have the evening and following morning to celebrate and enjoy the delights of Paris.
