London to Paris Bike Ride is a remarkable cycling challenge and is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, attracting hundreds of riders each year.

You will spend 4 days in the saddle, cycling 311 miles from capital to capital. Your journey begins in London with the route taking you through glorious English countryside as you cycle from Kent to Dover, before crossing the Channel to Calais. Once across the water, you start cycling ‘French style’, remember to keep to the right!  You will 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 as you reach the home stretch around the Arc de Triomphe and down 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 will feel crossing the finish line and the euphoric atmosphere as you celebrate your achievements in this magnificent capital, the saddle soreness soon wears off!

If you choose the 15th-19th July 2020 then you will have all the amazing features of this trip as well as the amazing opportunity to see the final stages of the Tour De France taking part where you had rode the day before. This is a brilliant extra on an already brilliant trip and there is an atmosphere you will not forget in a hurry.
