Beginning in London, our 4-day, 300 mile route leads us across stunning English countryside, through the beautiful South Downs and on to board a ferry from the white cliffs of Dover to Calais. On arrival in France, we continue cycling along remote French country lanes, passing through medieval market towns with fantastic views of the rolling French hills. The tarmac roads in France are excellent, and cycling is the country's favourite sport. Don't be surprised if locals make way and cheer you on!
The route takes in many war memorials and monuments, bringing home sobering thoughts. The highlight of this challenge is the magnificent view of the stunning 324m Eiffel Tower, marking our finish line. The days of cycling will be long, but when we reach Paris and have chance to celebrate our impressive achievements in this amazing capital city, the saddle soreness will quickly wear off!
