Challenge details

The classic London to Paris cycle challenge takes us from one iconic capital to another, passing beautiful scenery and famous battlefields before arriving at the incredible Eiffel Tower!

This iconic cycling journey takes us through some of the most beautiful countryside that England and France have to offer, past famous landmarks such as the white cliffs of Dover, until we arrive in the stunning city of Paris.


Day 1 (81 miles)-
Leave London and cycle through picturesque English countryside, tackling some fairly steep hills. In the afternoon, we board our ferry across the channel.

Day 2 (70 miles)- Ride from Calais through the beautiful landscape of Northern France to the historic town of Arras to stay the night.

Day 3 (76 miles)- Cycle south, deep into the heart of the rolling French countryside. We ride along tree-lined paths and through idyllic villages, crossing the River Somme and into the town of Compiegne.

Day 4 (60 miles)- Our last cycling day leads us south, finally reaching the heart of the fantastic city of Paris, where our challenge ends at the foot of the world-famous Eiffel Tower! Tonight we enjoy a celebratory dinner together.

Day 5- Breakfast in Paris and then return to London on the Eurostar.
