The route

Starting in London, this 275 mile ride will take you through glorious English countryside, quiet French country lanes and the rolling green hills of Northern France.

Cycling is France's favourite sport, so don’t be surprised when the locals stop to cheer you on in traditional market towns.

The pièce de résistance of this cycle will be the chance to ride the last few miles of the Tour de France route through Paris to finish at the Eiffel Tower. The following day you'll get to soak up the atmosphere of the final stage live from the world famous Champs-Élysées.

The ride caters for all levels of ability and this unique cycling experience will see you fully supported by the crew, leaving you to just cycle, enjoy the team spirit and focus on your goal of reaching Paris.
